News: The Blue Jays believe Encarnacion (quadriceps) could return from the disabled list next week, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. Impact: The team has already tentatively scheduled a batting practice and fielding session for Encarnacion on Thursday to test out his quad, and depending on how he feels during those activities, an activation would begin to seem imminent. The Blue Jays could sorely use a power bat like Encarnacion back in their lineup, with the team forced to rely on replacement-level talents such as Dan Johnson, Steve Tolleson and Munenori Kawasaki to hold down everyday gigs at present.(RotoWire, )

News: Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopolous suggested there's a chance Encarnacion could begin a rehab assignment by next weekend, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports. Impact: The Blue Jays have passed along little information on Encarnacion's status since he landed on the disabled list July 7, but the fact that Anthopolous merely has optimism about the slugger beginning a rehab assignment suggests he hasn't hit any notable setbacks in his recovery. The Blue Jays will evaluate him over the course of the week before making any sort of pronouncement on a stint in the minors.(RotoWire, )
