Fontenot, Belt rehabbing at Triple-A

SAN FRANCISCO -- Mike Fontenot and Brandon Belt will continue their rehab assignments with Triple-A Fresno. Fontenot, who went hitless in his first three games for the Grizzlies before finally recording a hit Sunday, could even return to the Majors as soon as this weekend.

Bochy said he knew it would take awhile for Fontenot, out since May 25 with a groin strain, to shake the rust off and find his swing. The utility man will play seven innings in each of his next two outings, hoping to get three or four at-bats in each game.

"Is there a possibility this weekend? Yeah," Bochy said. "He feels good. That's what's important. He just needs at-bats.

Belt, meanwhile, moved his rehab assignment from Class A San Jose to Fresno on Monday. The left-handed slugger, working his way back from a hairline fracture in his left wrist, went 3-for-6 with a walk and a strikeout in two games for the San Jose Giants.

As is the case with Fontenot, Bochy said he will need to see how Belt is feeling and playing before making a final decision about his return to the Majors.
