Brosseau (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. The 27-year-old reported to Durham on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment, but he'll simply join the Bulls on a semi-permanent basis instead. Brosseau could rejoin the Rays later in the season if the team needs a utility player.
Brosseau (oblique) joined the Rays' rookie-level Florida Complex League on Tuesday for a rehab assignment. Brosseau has been on the shelf for just over a week with what appears to be a minor right oblique strain. He's not expected to be in store for a prolonged rehab period, but Brosseau may not have a spot on the MLB roster available for him once he's reinstated from the injured list. The recent promotions of switch-hitting infield prospects Wander Franco and Vidal Brujan to the big leagues has rendered the righty-hitting Brosseau redundant as a short-side platoon option for Tampa Bay. Per Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network, manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that Brosseau will move his rehab to Triple-A Durham after playing just one game with the rookie club.
Brosseau (oblique) has resumed hitting off a tee, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. Brosseau has been on the 10-day injured list with a strained right oblique since Friday, but he was able to resume baseball activities less than a week later. However, it's not yet clear when the 27-year-old could return to action.

The 27-year-old was recalled by the Rays last week and went 2-for-11 with a double, an RBI and two runs in five appearances. Brosseau doesn't have an official timetable for his return since the severity of the injury remains unclear. Vidal Brujan was recalled in a corresponding move after he served as the 27th man for Thursday's doubleheader.
