The 31-year-old had been sidelined since November with a neck issue, but came off the bench in the 29-15 home loss to London Irish last weekend.
“Last week we didn’t get the result we wanted against a very strong London Irish,” said head coach Paul Gustard.
“A number of errors cost us the game and, regardless of the conditions, we came up short so we have worked hard this week to address those areas of our game to ensure we are in a strong place heading down to The Rec.
“The game was a lot tighter than the scoreline suggested with two late scores on the back of our mistakes after sustained pressure and territory that we failed to convert.
“We have played at Bath already this season, coming away with two wins against them in the Heineken Champions Cup, but we know that Saturday will present a different challenge with both sides aiming to push up the league table.
“Bath come into this game off the back of two narrow victories against Leicester and Worcester, so will be hoping to maintain momentum.”
Scrum-half Charlie Chapman will make his full Premiership debut for Gloucester, in Saturday’s trip to London Irish.
Franco Mostert continues as captain, with the Cherry and Whites showing seven changes from last week’s loss to Exeter Chiefs.
Danny Hobbs-Ayoyemi starts at loosehead for Irish, with Dave Porecki and Ollie Hoskins completing the front-row.
