Update on Barmes and Happ

McTaggart has an update on two Meat Wagon passengers, Barmes and Happ.

Barmes could return in 3-4 weeks, as opposed to 4-6. Wade:
"He was pleased with his grip strength. If he continues to make progress while we're gone, he can see him freed up to grip a bat when we get back. Hopefully, it moves a little bit faster than we had anticipated."

And Happ will throw a bullpen tomorrow, with everyone reasonably optimistic that he could pitch on Sunday.
