Kuhl has not had a smooth return after missing 2019 following Tommy John surgery. In his most recent outing, Sunday at Kansas City, he got knocked around for nine runs on four hits and six walks, although he struck out five in his 2 1/3 innings.

Kuhl revealed he was dealing with a cuticle abrasion on his right index finger that on Sunday left him with "no fastball command."
