CHICAGO รข?? The announcement wasn’t official since circumstances can change over the next few games, but manager Scott Servais said the team is leaning toward having right-hander Sam Gaviglio fill the fifth spot in the rotation and pitch on Tuesday in Houston against the Astros.

“It’s probably going to be Sam,” Servais said. “He’ll probably come back when we get to that, when we need him in Houston.”

Gaviglio was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma on July 7 to make sure he could get regular work during the All-Star break and be ready to join the rotation in the second half of the season.

He’s made one start with the Rainiers since being sent down, pitching five innings and allowing three runs on three hits with two walks and four strikeouts.
