Daniel Nava (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday.
He'll serve as the designated hitter Thursday before then playing some outfield. It's not clear how many rehab games Nava will need, but he would seem to have a good chance to be activated prior to the All-Star break.
Ryan Hanigan (hand) wasn't activated from the disabled list Wednesday because of a flight cancellation that delayed his arrival in Toronto.
Hanigan is in Toronto now but won't be activated until Thursday. Blake Swihart is likely to be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket to make room on the roster.
Sean Marshall (shoulder) played catch on Wednesday.
It was the first time he's thrown since undergoing surgery in May to repair a torn anterior capsule. "He looked normal, not like a guy coming off shoulder surgery. Pretty remarkable," Reds manager Bryan Price said. Despite Price's optimism, Marshall's appeal in free agency this winter figures to be limited give that he's coming off of a pair of shoulder operations.
Raisel Iglesias (oblique) allowed just one hit over three shutout innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.
Reds manager Bryan Price said the reports on Iglesias were "good." The right-hander is expected to make two more rehab starts before rejoining the big club's rotation after the All-Star break.
Joe Mauer is not in the Twins' lineup Wednesday.
It's a routine day off. Kennys Vargas is at first base with Mauer on the bench.
Torii Hunter is not in the Twins' lineup Wednesday.
He's just getting a breather with it being a day game after a night game. Eddie Rosario is in right field in Hunter's place, with Danny Santana in center and Shane Robinson in left.
Matt Holliday (quad) is scheduled to do some light running this week.
Holliday has been taking batting practice and is nearly ready to test out his ailing right quad with some jogging. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that he wasn't sure when Holliday would be cleared to up the intensity of his running. The Cards are holding out hope that the outfielder could return before the All-Star break, but it's certainly not a given.
Ryan Hanigan (hand) will not be activated from the disabled list Wednesday.
That's the day the Red Sox had been targeting him to return. The club could be delaying a decision with their catchers, as Blake Swihart has played well of late and the Sox don't want to lose Sandy Leon, who is out of options. Either way, Hanigan will surely be activated later this week.
