Great news this evening out of the desert.

Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona reports that Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson has been cleared to return to the major leagues and will start Sunday’s series finale against the Brewers.

Hudson has been sidelined since April 19 — just over a month — because of an impingement in his right shoulder. He allowed two runs in a five-inning rehab start Monday with the Triple-A Reno Aces.

The 24-year-old owns a sparkling 3.33 career ERA and pitched 222 innings last season for the Snakes.

Rays shortstop prospect Willy Adames took Red Sox starter and 2017 AL Cy Young Award runner-up Chris Sale yard for his first major league home run on Tuesday night. It was his second major league at-bat. The dinger cut the Rays’ deficit to 3-1.

The Rays called Adames up from Triple-A Durham ahead of Tuesday’s game. Adames is the Rays’ No. 2 prospect and No. 22 in baseball, according to MLB Pipeline. With Durham, he hit .311/.387/.466 with four home runs and 25 RBI in 173 plate appearances.

Manager Kevin Cash said that Adames is only going to be with the Rays for two or three days while Joey Wendle is on paternity leave, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reported. Adames is making his case to stay longer.
