Boston Red Sox fans can expect to see infielder Christian Arroyo make his return to the lineup this week.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said during a pregame press conference Saturday the infielder, who has been sidelined since late June after suffering a knee contusion, is expected to return when Boston travels to play the Los Angeles Angels. The Red Sox will begin a three-game series with L.A. on Monday.

Arroyo played in Triple-A Worcester on Saturday afternoon.

“If everything goes well, most likely he’ll travel to Anaheim tomorrow night and join us Monday,” Cora said on a video conference with reporters, per the team.

Arroyo suffered his injury during a collision with utility man Kiké Hernández.

The 26-year-old Arroyo tallied a .264 with four home runs before his injury.
