SEATTLE -- Reports about the injury rehab assignment for veteran reliever Matt Lindstrom have been positive, despite the fact that he allowed four runs on three hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning for Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday night. Manager Robin Ventura believes Lindstrom could be back within the next week but said he doesn't know if Lindstrom's left ankle, in which a tendon sheath was surgically repaired, is "quite right yet."

"When you are throwing, you are just trying to make sure everything is right when he comes off, and he's confident enough," Ventura said. "Not only pitching, but you have to be able to cover first. [The injury] happened to him coming off the mound, so you have to make sure he's feeling strong enough to be able to do all that kind of stuff.

"In Cleveland he thought he felt pretty good until he started doing comebackers. Then you could tell he wasn't quite right."
