Shin-Soo Choo was with the Indians as they began a four-game series in Boston on Monday, and manager Manny Acta said Choo will likely take batting practice at some point this week.

"I think he's ahead of schedule," Acta said. "He's a quick healer."

Choo hasn't played since June 24 after an injured left thumb required surgery. After icing it for a while before Monday's game, he was able to warm up with the team while wearing a brace on his left hand.
