No plan on rehab assignment for Rolen
CINCINNATI -- Third baseman Scott Rolen, on the disabled list since May 12 with a strained left shoulder, could be back relatively soon. But there will be no rehabilitation assignment in the Minors before his activation.

"We've been discussing that -- probably not," Reds manager Dusty Baker said on Tuesday. "He's been getting a lot of hitting. I think he's been on a rehab before and a couple of times he didn't go on a rehab. There are some guys that their strokes are such that they might not need it."

Rolen has continued to take batting practice and ground balls for the past week and has reported no problems.
