"The plan is to fly out tomorrow," assistant general manager Rob Antony said, "work out for a few days there and get him going. He'll rehab with [the Miracle] and play in games with them, then try to get him up to [Triple-A] Rochester."

There's no definitive timetable for Bartlett's return, other than the desire to get him plenty of rehab at-bats.

"I know he wants to play," Antony said. "He was excited to make the club, but he wants to contribute to the club, too."
