I think the early part of his rehab isn't necessarily about the results, moreso a way for him to get some work in. As noted in the first post, his progression was planned before he ever stepped back on the field. I assume that AAA is where he'll be more closely evaluated.
I honestly can't see him being too good of a fit right now. DY is a DH, aside from maybe being an adequate (or close to it) first baseman. I'd rather see Thames DHing and Shelton at 1st. He would also take Alexis Gomez's spot. As easy as it is to rip on Gomez because he will never be an adequate starter in the bigs, he is doing fine in the role he has as an occasional starter against tough RHP/pinch runner/late inning defensive replacement, most of which DY definitely is not.
I wouldn't be surprised if this rehab was nothing more than a way to buy some time to figure out what to do with the guy.
