According to Casey Pratt of CSNBayArea.com, Yoenis Cespedes will begin a minor league rehab assignment this evening with Triple-A Sacramento. The Cuban outfielder hasn’t played since April 12 due to a strained muscle in his left hand, but he was cleared for game action after he through batting practice earlier this week with no issues.

Cespedes’ rehab assignment doesn’t figure to be a lengthy one. He’s eligible to return for Sunday’s series finale against the Orioles and there’s a good chance he’ll be ready by then as long as he can avoid a setback.

Cespedes was batting .200 (8-for-40) with three home runs and seven RBI in 11 games prior to the injury. The Athletics are off to a 13-9 start this season, but they have lost seven out of 12 games without him.
