Pirates | Santiago Turns Down Rehab Assignment
Associated Press reports Pittsburgh Pirates C Benito Santiago (infection) refused a minor-league rehabilitation assignment Saturday, April 30, and will continue working out with the team. A viral infection caused him to lose five to six pounds. He said he is fine now and ready to play and does not see the necessity of going to the minors. By refusing to go to the minors, it could delay his return to the field because he needs to regain his timing at the plate and in the field.
