There is no specific timeline for the returns of pitchers, especially Williams, who has been sidelined since May 31 with an appendectomy.

Rotation depth has been an issue for the Cubs over the past month, with Williams and Adbert Alzolay missing each time due to injuries. Alzolay missed about two weeks with a blister, returning last weekend.

Ross said this week that the the plan is for Steele, released since May 21 with a strained right hamstring, to stretch more than one sleeve. The southpaw impressed on 11 relief outings before falling, posting a 2.03 ERA.

The Maples achieved a 1.99 ERA in 18 relief appearances before competing in the IL on June 16 with right tricep tension.
