Athletics | Hiroyuki Nakajima starting rehab assignment

Oakland Athletics SS Hiroyuki Nakajima (hamstring) will play seven innings for Triple-A Sacramento Friday, May 3, but there is no timetable for him to rejoin the team.

Fantasy Tip: It will probably be a few weeks before the A's will consider calling up Nakajima. The team wants him to gain some confidence and also get some repetitions at second base to make him more valuable. There is a chance that he could eventually take hold of the second base job, but chances are better that he becomes more of a utility infielder at the big league level.
