Michael Feliz (R) Headshot

Feliz (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Feliz recently returned to mound work, and everything apparently went off without a hitch, so he'll head to Corpus Christi. The length of his rehab assignment has yet to be determined, but he's expected to need multiple outings before rejoining the big-league bullpen. He'll likely return sometime after rosters expand at the beginning of September.

Tony Sipp (L) Headshot

Sipp (calf) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Sipp, who has been sidelined all month with right calf soreness, continues to inch closer to a return to the big-league bullpen. While the Astros haven't determined the length of his rehab assignment, he's expected to need multiple outings before being activated, which likely won't be until after rosters expand at the beginning of September. When he does return, he'll likely be used in lower-leverage situations given his unsightly 6.47 ERA through 32 innings this season.

Jordan Jankowski (R) Headshot

Jankowski was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on Sunday.

A 28-year-old right-handed reliever, Jankowski was designated for assignment by the Astros earlier this week, but the Dodgers deemed him worthy of a 40-man roster spot. He has always been able to miss bats int he minors, but has struggled to throw strikes (12.4 percent walk rate) this year at Triple-A. Look for him to report to Triple-A Oklahoma City and be recalled when rosters expand in September.

Corey Kluber (R) Headshot

Kluber (ankle) threw a side bullpen session Sunday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

This is an encouraging development, as Kluber, who exited his last start after just 74 pitches with a sprained ankle, didn't appear to have any issues during Sunday's session. The Indians will wait and see how Kluber feels Monday before determining his status for Wednesday's start against the Red Sox.

Will Harris (R) Headshot

Harris (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Harris was able to complete a simulated inning over the weekend, his last hurdle before heading out on a brief rehab assignment. The Astros haven't determined how many rehab outings he'll need -- one or two -- but either way it sounds like he'll be back before the end of the week.

Joe Panik (L) Headshot

Panik (concussion) ran sprints on the field Sunday and is optimistic he will be activated soon, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

He said his headaches went away Friday and hasn't had any of the balance/vision issues he had last year when he had a concussion. It is possible he could return before the end of the month. Kelby Tomlinson is starting at second base and hitting second in the finale against the Phillies.
1:51 pm (EST)
Evan Gattis (R) Headshot

Gattis (concussion) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gattis was able to workout behind the plate with no issues over the weekend, clearing the way for him to head out on a rehab assignment. He's expected to play catcher for six or seven innings Tuesday, serve as the DH on Wednesday, and then return to catcher on Thursday before possibly returning to the Astros. When he returns, he should resume his timeshare behind the dish with Brian McCann (knee).
