Infielder Abreu begins rehab stint at Triple-A


SAN FRANCISCO -- Infielder Tony Abreu, originally in the mix to make the Giants as an extra infielder during Spring Training, finally gets a chance to show off his skills.

Abreu, on the disabled list since March 22 with a left knee sprain, began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Fresno on Friday night.

"It's good to get him going on his rehab," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "It took longer than anybody thought. For him, he's in Spring Training."

The 28-year-old has spent parts of four years in the Major Leagues, most recently with the Kansas City Royals last year.

"There is no target date for him," Bochy said. "We want him to continue to get better, with no more setbacks."

Abreu is a career .252 hitter with four home runs and 46 RBIs in 168 games. He's also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
