Grant Green (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

Green has been sidelined since July 23 with a lumbar sprain. He could be ready to rejoin the Angels sometime next week, but with Gordon Beckham on board there might not be a role for him.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that Grant Green (back) returning before the end of the week is "probably a long shot."

Green ran the bases recently at extended spring training and is nearing a rehab assignment. However, it sounds like he won't be activated until at least next week. The 26-year-old has been out since July 23 with a lumbar sprain.

Grant Green (back) could start a rehab assignment next week.

Green has been doing everything but taking live batting practice, something he could do in Arizona over the next few days. That would be the last hurdle before a rehab assignment. Green has been out since July 23 with a lumbar sprain.

Grant Green (back) has been doing baseball activities in recent days, but there is still no date for a rehab assignment.

Green has been hitting off a tee and been taking soft toss, and he fielded ground balls for the first time on Wednesday. Green has been on the disabled list since July 23 with a lumbar sprain, and he's still at least a week or two away from returning to the Angels.

Grant Green (back) has begun hitting off a tee.

Green has missed the last couple weeks with a lumbar sprain. He's progressing in the right direction slowly but surely but isn't close to returning.

Angels placed INF/OF Grant Green on the 15-day disabled list due to a lumbar sprain.

Green hadn't played since Sunday, and now we know why. The utility player is hitting .313/.321/.400 in a part-time role with the Angels this year. C.J. Cron was recalled to take his roster spot.

Angels recalled INF/OF Grant Green from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Green has batted .324/.333/.419 in the majors this season but played sparingly during his last stint. It's unlikely that he'll come into much playing time this time around.

Angels optioned INF/OF Grant Green to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Green played sparingly had and had just one hit in 10 at-bats in his recent stint with the big club. The Halos have added Cam Bedrosian to the bullpen to take his place on the roster.

Grant Green is making his first major league start at third base on Wednesday night.

The Angels are probably hoping Green can become a regular option at the hot corner with David Freese batting just .226/.305/.282 across 55 games this season. Green, meanwhile, has hit .333/.347/.435 in 25 games. The 26-year-old former first-round pick is worth a speculative add in AL-only and deeper mixed fantasy leagues.

Angels recalled INF/OF Grant Green from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Green was sent down earlier this month even though he hit .359/.373/.469 over 22 games. He's not necessarily guaranteed a ton of playing time but can easily slide into a variety of roles and is worth owning in deeper leagues.

Angels optioned INF Grant Green to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Green was the odd man out, at least in the eyes of the organization, when the team needed a seventh reliever. The 26-year-old didn't do much to deserve the demotion, batting .359/.373/.469 with the big club. The Angels recalled Cory Rasmus to take Green's spot on the roster.

Grant Green went 3-for-4 on Sunday, lifting his average to .368.

Green, who hit his first homer last night, is now 14-for-38 since his callup on May 2. He's started against lefties since day one of his callup, but he needs to play against righties too while he's hitting like this.

Grant Green hit his first homer of the year Saturday in the win over the Rays.

It was a two-run shot off Cesar Ramos. Green was mostly playing against lefties a week ago, but it seems his performance is earning him some time versus righties now. As it should: the Angels need to find out whether he's someone who can contribute after Josh Hamilton and Kole Calhoun return. Green has picked up at least one hit in eight of his nine starts and is batting .324 in 34 at-bats.
