The Red Sox are hopeful that Stephen Drew (concussion) will begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

This confirms a report by WEEI.com. Drew made it through an extended spring training game on Tuesday and is expected to play in another one on Wednesday. He may need a few days to get his stamina back following the concussion, but it's conceivable that he'll be ready to join Boston's lineup within the next couple of weeks.

Rich Hill (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.

If it goes well, he should be cleared to pitch this weekend against the Astros. Hill left his start Sunday versus the Tigers after suffering a mild groin strain. He went 6 1/3 strong innings in that outing and boasts a 2.25 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 74 strikeouts over 64 total innings this season.

Blue Jays acquired RHP Jason Grilli from the Braves for RHP Sean Ratcliffe.

Grilli has posted an ugly 5.29 ERA, 1.71 WHIP, and 23/13 K/BB ratio in 17 innings this season, but the Blue Jays apparently believe he has something left in the tank. The 39-year-old right-hander will presumably join up with the Jays on Wednesday in Toronto. He figures to pitch in low-leverage situations initially.

Alex Wood is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a left triceps injury.

Wood apparently suffered the injury near the end of his five-inning start Monday against the Cubs. Julio Urias is going to take his spot in the rotation this weekend versus the Braves -- a nice matchup for the young lefty. Wood had registered a decent 3.99 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 62/19 K/BB ratio over 56 1/3 innings (10 starts) this season for Los Angeles.

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) could join the Reds' rotation next week against the Cardinals.

He struck out seven batters over four innings of one-run ball Monday in his second rehab start with Triple-A Louisville. DeSclafani will make one more minor league appearance on Saturday before possibly taking the ball for the Reds next Thursday versus St. Louis. The right-hander has been out all season with an oblique strain. He was a popular fantasy sleeper before the injury and is worth a stash in deeper leagues.

Kenta Maeda has some residual swelling in his right hand and might not pitch Thursday.

Maeda was struck in the hand by a comebacker in his last start Saturday against the Mets. X-rays turned up negative, but even a little swelling can affect the right-hander's delivery. Maeda was lined up to start Thursday's series finale at Wrigley Field.

Jose Reyes (suspension) will join Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday for a rehab assignment.

Reyes has been getting into baseball shape for the last two weeks at the Rockies' spring training complex in Arizona and can begin playing in live games June 1, when his domestic violence suspension officially comes to an end. The veteran shortstop is expected to spend two weeks in the minor leagues. Beyond that, it's not exactly clear what the plan is.
May 31 - 5:59 PM

Steve Pearce (elbow) is back in the Rays' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

He'll start at second base and bat cleanup versus Royals right-hander Dillon Gee. Pearce made an early exit Monday with elbow discomfort, but he told reporters Tuesday that it's nothing more than inflammation.
May 31 - 5:41 PM

Yunel Escobar (wrist) remains out Tuesday.

Escobar bruised his right wrist Sunday while diving for a ball and hasn't played since. He is still considered day-to-day. Jefry Marte will start at third base and bat fifth Tuesday night against the Tigers.
May 31 - 5:20 PM

Stephen Piscotty (illness) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Piscotty missed Monday's series opener at Milwaukee Park with food poisoning. He is starting in right field and batting cleanup in his return to action Tuesday versus Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta.
May 31 - 4:59 PM

Ryan Braun (neck) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cardinals.

Braun acknowledged Monday that he doesn't have full mobility in his neck, but he'll try to give it a go in the second game of a three-game set at Miller Park. He missed three straight days with neck stiffness.
May 31 - 4:42 PM

According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Rangers have discussed keeping Jurickson Profar around after Rougned Odor's suspension ends.

Hanser Alberto would also remain on the active roster and the Rangers would go with a seven-man bullpen. Profar is 6-for-18 (.333) since his callup on Friday and he was slashing 284/.356/.426 with five homers and four steals in 189 plate appearances this season with Triple-A Round Rock. The former top prospect might have finally found some footing at the major league level, though it's still pretty loose.
