Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo
will begin a minor league rehab assignment tonight with Low-A Lake County. He is expected to play right field, though it is not known for certain if he will play the whole game or if he will be limited to five or seven innings his first time out. He was with the Indians in Boston and took batting practice with them, and then returned to Cleveland over the weekend to have his thumb re-evaluated before sending him on his rehab assignment. If he does not have any setbacks and shows he is ready, there is a decent chance he could be activated this weekend, though the target date still looks to be August 16th when the Indians start a series in Chicago against the White Sox.Follow Tony and the Indians Prospect Insider on Twitter @TonyIPI.
