Nate Schierholtz is eligible to return from the disabled list Tuesday and the outfielder believes it will happen then.

Schierholtz did some running to test his broken toe and took batting practice Thursday. He said he cannot yet run full speed. He expects the injury to improve but not complete heal until the winter.

"I don't think it is going to completely heal in a few weeks," Schierholtz said. "So it is definitely something I could deal with."

Additionally, Carlos Ruiz remains on track for an early-September return. Ruiz caught Cliff Lee's bullpen session Thursday and then participated in batting practice.
