Kubel was scheduled to play in rehab games on Monday and Tuesday at Triple-A Reno, but the 14-10 Diamondbacks have suddenly scrapped that plan. Kubel wound up missing exactly 15 days with a strained left quadriceps muscle. He went 3-for-4 with a home run Saturday in an extended spring training game.
The 30-year-old had a .975 OPS, two home runs and six RBI in 32 plate appearances before the injury.
