NEW YORK -- The Red Sox received positive news about hitting coach Greg Colbrunn, who was hospitalized prior to a June 4 game against the Indians after suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage. He is currently in Boston, and will join the team for the start of the Cubs series Monday.
"He's doing well, he'll be back tomorrow," said manager John Farrell. "One thing we're trying to get a better gauge on is the endurance inside a given day, how many hours on his feet. ... There's going to be a gradual build up."
Colbrunn experienced dizziness prior to the start of the game in Cleveland and was admitted to the Cleveland Clinic, where it was determined that he had suffered the hemorrhage.
Minor League hitting coordinator Tim Hyers has been with the team in his place to help assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez.
"Tim will remain until we get a better gauge on Greg's capabilities for the time being," said Farrell. "[Colbrunn's] been cleared medically, otherwise he wouldn't be returning to us. So he's made steady and quick progress over the last 7-10 days. We're looking forward to him getting back to us."
