Nix making progress, could return Monday
MINNEAPOLIS -- Second baseman Jayson Nix could rejoin the Blue Jays on Monday in Detroit, manager John Farrell said before Friday's game against the Twins.

After being rained out Thursday in Fort Myers, Fla., Nix began a rehab assignment with Dunedin, the Blue Jays' Class A Advanced affiliate. Dunedin played a doubleheader against the Fort Myers Miracle, the Twins' affiliate in the Florida State League.

"He had early work [Thursday], everything was progressing fine," Farrell said. "We expect him to get the next three days with Dunedin, and then the potential of returning to us on Monday in Detroit is a real possibility."
