ST. PETERSBURG DH Luke Scott ran the bases this morning at full speed and participated in more running drills and took batting practice.

“Awesome,” he said. “Best day yet.”

Scott should begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, most likely with Class A Charlotte.

“Basically I need to get on the fastball,” Scott said. “If I can get on the fastball I’ll be ready.”
