Sandoval (knee) will not make his scheduled rehab appearance Tuesday night due to an illness, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

This doesn't seem like a major setback, but it could push the return date for the "Kung Fu Panda" later in the week. More information on his status should come forth once he's able to resume his rehab assignment.

Sandoval (knee) could return to Boston before the end of the week, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval went 0-for-3 while playing third base for Triple-A for Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday. It was his first time playing the field in three games with the PawSox. Manager John Farrell said they'd like Sandoval to get some repetition, suggesting he'll get at least one more game in the field. The PawSox are off Monday, so figure at least one more game on assignment Tuesday before the club activates him off the disabled list.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval, who also took batting practice Tuesday, has been out since April 24 with a sprained left knee. During his downtime, the Red Sox continued to experience sub-par play at third base, particularly defensively, although Deven Marrero has provided very good glove work the last three games.

EDGE Analysis

This timetable would push Sandoval's potential return to the following week. Brock Holt (vertigo) could be activated for the St. Louis series and Josh Rutledge should continue to see the bulk of the starts at third base in the meantime.
