Stewart (quadriceps) is expected to be activated from the injured list over the weekend, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Stewart was with the team Tuesday but will head back to Florida to continue his rehab assignment for now. He's been battling a quad strain since mid-April.
Stewart (quadriceps) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with High-A Lakeland on Friday.
Stewart, who has been sidelined since April 17 with a quadriceps injury, joined the Flying Tigers on Sunday but wasn't quite ready to begin his rehab stint until Friday. It remains to be seen how many minor-league games the outfielder will need to appear in before being cleared to rejoin the big club, leaving his return date murky.
Stewart (quadriceps) is traveling to High-A Lakeland to begin his rehab assignment, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Stewart has made slow progress since landing on the injured list but was spotted on the field working with strength coach Chris Walter earlier in the week. Now preparing for the next step in his rehab, Stewart won't immediately enter game action in Lakeland, meaning he is likely still some time from returning to the field.
Stewart (quadriceps) isn't traveling with the Tigers on their current road trip and has yet to resume baseball activities since being placed on the 10-day injured list last week, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Early indications were that Stewart would be on track for an abbreviated stay on the IL, but his limited progress since being shut down suggests he'll be on track to miss more than the minimum 10 days. McCosky notes that Stewart will require a minor-league rehab assignment prior to being activated, but the Tigers likely won't map out a schedule for the outfielder until he's able to play the field, run the bases and hit live pitching without any discomfort. Dustin Peterson has taken over as the Tigers' primary left fielder since Stewart moved to the IL.
Stewart landed on the injured list Thursday with a bruised quad, though it doesn't sound like the issue will force him to miss an extended period of time. He'll be eligible to return April 28 and seems likely to do so, barring setbacks.
