Astros SS Jed Lowrie making progress from thumb injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:23 pm ET) Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie has begun taking batting practice and fielding ground balls, reports MLB.com.

Lowrie has been out for the last 10 weeks after he tore a ligament in his right thumb which required surgery. His next step is to take a full round of batting practice.

"When he's ready to go out and play, we'll have a game plan for him as he gets into games," manager A.J. Hinch said. "I talk to him every day in some capacity. We've really haven't gotten too specific. He's taken ground balls at short and third. He's watching and he understands. He's played just about everywhere in his career, but having a definitive plan -- until we put a calendar in front of him where he's going to go, [Double-A] Corpus [Christi] or [Triple-A] Fresno, it's nothing that we're discussing."

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin to make Double-A rehab start Friday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:00 pm ET) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin is expected to make his second rehab start Friday for the team's Double-A affiliate, reports Cleveland.com.

Tomlin threw two innings for the team's Rookie League club Sunday.

"It went good," Tomlin said. "The fastball and cutter were where I wanted it. It was the same with the change up and curve ball. I didn't walk anybody, threw strikes and felt better in the second inning than I did in the first. That was the main thing. I wanted to get those two innings in and see how I recovered."

He is expected to throw three or four innings Friday. Tomlin has not pitched this season as he recovers from shoulder surgery.
