Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts will go through pregame workouts on Friday and Saturday, then play in a rehab game. If all goes well, he could rejoin the club for a two-game set in Miami on Tuesday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Betts has been out since July 29 due to concussion symptoms suffered the day prior when he flipped over the wall in front of the bullpen at Fenway Park. He’s having a solid season, batting .265/.317/.438 with 10 home runs, 48 RBI, 52 runs scored, and 13 stolen bases. Jackie Bradley, Jr. has been handling center field in his absence.

The 22-year-old was rated among baseball’s top-100 prospects heading into the 2014 season, earning a #62 rating from and #75 from Baseball America.
