Carp, 25, will be in uniform (#20) and available for today's (4:10 PT) game at the Tampa Bay Rays.

Carp began his rehab assignment with AAA Tacoma on April 13. In 13 games with the Rainiers, Carp hit .137 (7-for-51) with 2 doubles and 4 RBI.

Carp was diagnosed with a sprained right shoulder on March 29. He suffered the injury diving for a Kurt Suzuki double in the fourth inning on March 28 in the Japan Opening Series against Oakland. Carp remained in the game and was examined after the game.

He appeared in 79 games at 4 positions: 1B - 34 G/30 GS, LF - 27 G/26 GS, DH - 19 G/GS, RF - 1 G/0 GS.

Olivo, 33, was injured in the 9th inning of last night's 3-2 loss at Tampa Bay, fielding a ball between the mound and home plate. He was in the midst of an eight-game hitting streak during which he batted .333 (11-for-33) with 3 home runs (including one last night) and 4 RBI.

For the season, Olivo was hitting .210 (17-for-81) with 2 doubles, 4 homers and 7 RBI. He had started 19 of the teams first 24 games behind the plate.
