FRI, MAY 26, 2017 - Sandoval (knee) will play two full rehab games at third base this weekend and he could return to the Red Sox as soon as Monday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. This weekend's set of games will be Sandoval's final test before returning to the big -league club. He's set to play nine innings at third base Friday and Saturday before getting the day off Sunday. Sandoval's return will be a boon to the Red Sox, as third base has been a consistent area of weakness in his absence. He has hit .231 with two doubles in 13 at-bats during his rehab stint.
