Guyer is 0-for-8 through the first two games of his rehab assignment at High-A Charlotte, but he did return to the outfield without any issues Monday night. The Rays also hope to get Steven Souza (hip) back soon, though he appears to be a bit behind Guyer.
Brentz has hit safely in all four games since his recall and beat the shift Monday, stroking a single and one of his doubles to right-center. He should continue to be the primary left fielder until Brock Holt (concussion) or Chris Young (hamstring) become available, but if he continues to hit, Brentz may stick around on the major league roster. His presence will allow the Red Sox to use Holt in the more desired super-utility role.
Desmond continues to rake for the Rangers after being left for dead on the free agent market for much of the offseason. The converted infielder has now hit safely in nine straight games and is up to a .321 average for the season. Desmond also has 14 home runs, 51 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 2016.
Trout is on fire, with at least two hits in each of his past five games and six of his past seven. He has also homered in three straight games and is on pace to record his third straight season of 35 or more home runs. His batting line is up to .319/.415/.572 as he continues to make a push for his second MVP award despite the incompetence of his supporting cast.
It's a minor miracle to say the least. Gose is hitting .181 with 11 RBI and 64 strikeouts in 144 at-bats. His at-bats are declining because the Mud Hens are juggling time between him and stud JaCoby Jones. The end is nigh.
Swisher is batting .247 over 54 games with Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre as he searches for another shot in the majors.
Reddick was originally scheduled to come off of the disabled list on Monday, but his return has now been pushed back to Tuesday. His thumb has so far held up, but he's struggled at the plate in his rehab assignments, hitting just 1-for-17. Before he landed on the disabled list, he was slashing .320/.394/.466.
Holt had been dealing with lingering concussion symptoms, but told reporters he's feeling "pretty good right now." Despite the progress he's made and the scorching hot bat he's had while on rehab -- he's hitting .421 (8-for-19) following a three-hit day for the PawSox on Sunday -- Holt's return to Boston appears to be on hold for a few more days. The Red Sox were hoping to have Holt come back and serve as a super-utility reserve, but outfield injuries have opened a glaring need in left field.
The 26-year-old outfielder has been progressively working his way back from May 24 surgery to repair multiple broken bones in his left hand. The most recent step of taking what's commonly referred to as "dry swings" against air is naturally an essential one, and marks the first time Kiermaier has handled a bat since the injury. To date, the young slugger appears on track to return within the original 8-to-10 week timetable provided after the procedure.
The 30-year-old was hitless in four at-bats in his first rehab game on Saturday night, and should be back on the field for the Stone Crabs again Monday. Guyer continues to eye a mid-week return to the big league club, assuming he suffers no setbacks in his second rehab game.
