The next step is to restore Won from a slain right hand it’s a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte.
Sox manager Tony La Rousseau said Vaughn was due to leave for Charlotte on Tuesday night and will likely play on Wednesday.
“He has made progress,” La Rousseau said. “(He) is going to Charlotte and will start getting bats. I think we’ll see how he feels (to determine how long he stays in Charlotte). He has a slight soreness, but it is a soreness, not a soreness.
“He just needs to take part in gaming competitions and see how it feels. You will return to the major leagues and he will want to be as good as he can be. ”
On April 29, in the ninth inning against the Los Angeles Angels, Vaughn received a blow to the arm of Mike Myers and was injured on May 2.
He has a slash of .283 / .367 / .566 with three doubles, four home runs, 12 WRCs and five runs in 16 games. Despite the time missed, he entered Tuesday with equal leadership in Homers and RBI.
