Royals' Hunter Dozier: Likely headed for rehab stint

Manager Ned Yost said Dozier (side) will likely require a rehab assignment before rejoining the Royals, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

There was some hope that Dozier would be cleared to return from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, though it now appears the third baseman will be sent out on a brief minor-league rehab stint before being activated. Yost noted that Dozier will start taking batting practice in the next day or two before joining a minor-league affiliate, suggesting his return likely won't come until early next week. In the meantime, look for Cheslor Cuthbert and Kelvin Gutierrez to continue filling in at the hot corner.
