Third baseman Scott Rolen, out since May 12 with a strained left shoulder, took batting practice again on Sunday. Reds manager Dusty Baker said that Rolen has progressed well.
However, a target date for Rolen's activation from the disabled list remains unclear.
"We have to see and have to discuss it with him," Baker said on Sunday. "We want him to come back ready and not come back and have to get ready."
Baker said that he and Rolen have not discussed whether the veteran player would go out on a rehab assignment.
