Pompey's (concussion) rehab assignment expires Monday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Pompey has been sidelined all season while working his way back from his latest concussion. The outfielder is out of options, so the Blue Jays must add him to their 40-man roster or make a move with him (designate for assignment or trade) once his rehab window expires Monday. Across 14 rehab games, Pompey is slashing .244/.327/.311 with five RBI and a stolen base.
Pompey (concussion) went 0-for-4 with an RBI and a strikeout in his first rehab game with Triple-A Buffalo on Monday. Pompey was moved up to Buffalo as a part of the next step in his rehab assignment. The 26-year-old has had an unfortunate history of concussions over the years and is currently battling back from his latest one, which he suffered in spring training. In his four prior stints with the Blue Jays, he only surpassed 100 plate appearances once and failed to hit better than .230 in three out of his four seasons. Pompey, who is now out of minor-league options, will be deep on the outfield depth chart, if he's not DFA'd immediately upon activation.
Pompey (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday in the Gulf Coast League, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports. He will be the designated hitter, playing in his first game of the year after suffering a concussion in spring training. Given the amount of time he has missed, it would not be surprising if this rehab assingment lasted weeks, not days. Pompey does not have any minor-league options remaining, so he will need to join the active roster when activated.
Pompey (concussion) could be ready to play in games next week, Alexis Brudnicki of MLB.com reports. Pompey has been sidelined since being diagnosed with a concussion in late March, but he is in the final stages of his recovery and could begin a rehab assignment soon. Pompey will be an option in center field for the Blue Jays once he is back in playing shape, as Toronto has been using Teoscar Hernandez and Randal Grichuk -- two options better suited for corner spots -- to fill the spot of late.
Pompey (concussion) has resumed all baseball activities and will be reevaluated next week, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. Pompey suffered a concussion in late March that was serious enough to send him to the 60-day injured list. His target return date should become clearer following the reevaluation.
