Manzella to Corpus for rehab assignment

Tommy Manzella will head to Corpus to prepare to return to the Big Club (though in what role is anybody's guess).

The plan is for Manzella to get two at-bats in two games and then increase to three at-bats in two games. When he's prepared to play a full game, he will continue his rehab at Triple-A Round Rock. The longest the rehab could last is 20 days, but Manzella hopes it won't be that long.

"It's going to depend on how I feel. I think it's going to be on my end, basically getting into playing shape and letting them know when I'm physically ready to play."
