Red Sox’s Steve Pearce Suffers Setback During Rehab Assignment

by

Steve Pearce’s frustrating season just got even more frustrating.

The Red Sox infielder has been on the injured list since June 1 with a low back strain and was hopeful to return to the lineup during Boston’s three-game set with the Toronto Blue Jays beginning Tuesday.

But it doesn’t seem that will happen now, as MassLive’s Chris Cotillo reported Monday that Pearce “suffered a setback” during his rehab assignment in Triple-A Pawtucket and likely won’t be activated as planned. Cotillo also reported that “there?s a good possibility that Pearce, who is dealing with knee pain, will have his rehab assignment recalled,” per a source.

Pearce has played in seven games with the PawSox before missing the last three. He was batting just .180 with a home run and nine RBIs in 99 plate appearances with Boston.
