Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Brock Holt (concussion) will begin his rehab work with "general conditioning."

Per Farrell, Holt underwent a "battery of tests" when he visited concussion specialist Dr. Mickey Collins in Pittsburgh. The 27-year-old outfielder was actually hoping to be activated from the 7-day concussion disabled list on Wednesday, but the Red Sox are taking no chances here. Somewhat distressing, he initially suffered the concussion on May 10, but it was not diagnosed for another week.

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is next scheduled to make a rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday.

Rodriguez turned in nice work in Tuesday's rehab outing at Triple-A, tossing seven innings and allowing just one run. The 23-year-old southpaw initially hit the disabled list prior to Opening Day with a right patella subluxation. He had a setback in his recovery that forced him to miss one rehab start earlier this month, but it appears that the renewed soreness in the knee has dissipated. There is no concrete date for him to join the Red Sox rotation at this point, but early-June will become realistic if he continues to pitch well on the farm.

Kevin Jepsen earned his fourth save of the season Wednesday in the Twins' 7-5 win over the Royals.

Jepsen worked around a Jarrod Dyson one-out double to preserve the Twins' two-run lead. It was only the 12th win of the season for Minnesota. Jepsen is operating as the club's fill-in closer with Glen Perkins (shoulder) sidelined indefinitely, but there haven't been many opportunities for saves.

Tyler Duffey allowed five earned runs in 6 2/3 innings but picked up a win on Wednesday versus the Royals.

Minnesota's offense finally offered up some run support, plating six before the beginning of the sixth inning. Duffey surrendered all five of his runs in the top of the fourth -- on a walk, a single, two doubles, and a triple. He is 2-3 with a 3.93 ERA for the year.

Jean Segura said he does not have a concussion.

Pirates reliever Arquimedes Caminero hit Segura on the side of his batting helmet with a 96 mph fastball on Tuesday, sending him out of the game and to a local hospital. He remains active on the Diamondbacks' roster Wednesday and could be ready to return by the weekend.

Dillon Gee took a loss Wednesday after yielding six runs -- five earned -- in four innings versus the Twins.

Not a good sign when Minnesota's punchless offense can post crooked numbers against you. Gee gave up two runs in the first inning, one more in the second, and then three more between the fourth and fifth. He watched his ERA rise from 2.90 to 3.86 in the matinee loss at Target Field. We'd expect the regression to continue.

Jeanmar Gomez earned his 17th save of the season in Wednesday afternoon's 8-5 defeat of the Tigers.

Gomez retired Cameron Maybin, J.D. Martinez, and Miguel Cabrera in order in the bottom of the ninth inning to preserve Philly's three-run lead. The 28-year-old right-hander has been one of the biggest surprises of the 2016 fantasy season so far, boasting a 2.45 ERA in 25 2/3 frames. He is 17-for-18 in save opportunities.

Pirates athletic trainer Todd Tomczyk said that the range of motion and strength in Elias Diaz's injured right elbow are getting "close to normal."

Diaz is progressing in his recovery from an early May debridement procedure on his throwing elbow, but he still has a ways to go. The 25-year-old backstop is expected to be out at least another month. He could return in late June or early July if he doesn't suffer a setback in rehab.
