Rays to activate Jeremy Hellickson
Hellickson, who missed two starts while on the 15-day DL because of right shoulder inflammation, is Saturday's scheduled starter.
Farnsworth, a late-inning reliever on the 60-day DL, hasn't appeared in a game this season due to a strained right elbow.
Also, reliever Joel Peralta will return Saturday from his eight-game suspension for having pine tar on his glove.
