Barmes to begin rehab assignment Monday

Brian McTaggart says that Clint Barmes will begin a rehab assignment on Monday, getting two games with OKC on Monday and Tuesday, and maybe two games with Corpus on Wednesday and "possibly Thursday."

"The last few days swinging in New York, I felt great. I hadn't had any pain hitting or fielding or catching, so we're on schedule with what we had originally talked about. I just want to get as many at-bats as I can in four days."
