Reds making sure not to rush Jack Hannahan
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Reds infielder Jack Hannahan, who is working his way back from October shoulder surgery, has gone 3 for 9 (.333) with one double and one RBI in three games since beginning a rehab assignment with Class A Dayton. He has been the DH all three games.

"He's starting to do some things at first base and we're segueing probably from DH to first base and eventually to third base," Reds manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "But he's doing some different throws -- like that 3-6-1 double play -- which requires a different arm angle and footwork. So every time we reintegrate something, there's typically a little more soreness afterward, as you would expect while getting into shape.

"So we're taking a step and then we're taking a day off for recovery. He felt great yesterday."

Justin Turner set to start rehab work Sunday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Dodgers infielder Justin Turner is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Sunday with Class A Rancho Cucamonga, MLB.com reports.

He's expected to serve as a designated hitter in his first game action. Barring any setbacks, Turner could be back from the disabled list after three rehab games.

"I don't think it's a matter of [how many] games, it's just trying to get some at-bats," Turner said. "Everything feels good. I took a bunch of at-bats down there, live ABs vs. a couple of young guys down there. But it's a little bit different when you have a cage around you and taking actual ABs. So we'll see how that goes."
