Encarnacion (quadriceps) will play the field for the first time in his rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Buffalo, the Buffalo News' Mike Harrington reports.

He hasn't played in the field in over a month, but he'll bat leadoff and play first base in his second game with Triple-A and his fourth overall in his rehab assignment. He hit a grand slam during Tuesday's game, and should be back with the Blue Jays in the near future.

Encarnacion (quad) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Dunedin on Saturday, Chris Toman of MLB.com reports.

After he was initially prescribed a two-to-four week recovery timetable from the quad injury, Encarnacion has missed over a month of action, depriving the Blue Jays of some needed pop. Because of the extended absence, Encarnacion will likely require at least a handful of rehab games before the team feels comfortable activating him. With the Blue Jays falling six games behind the Orioles for the division lead following back-to-back losses, even the return of one of the game's top power threats might not be enough for the team to overcome the deficit.

Encarnacion (quadriceps) has resumed hitting and is expected to run in the next few days, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

A setback late last month forced the Blue Jays to shut Encarnacion down for a few days, but he's begun ramping things back up and appears set to test his hamstring with some running later in the week. Manager John Gibbons said previously that Encarnacion will likely need to complete a minor league rehab assignment before being activated.
