Pittsburgh Pirates SS Clint Barmes (groin) will start his rehab assignment with Double-A Altoona Wednesday, Aug. 13, and move to Triple-A Indianapolis. He'll start by playing five innings and work his way to complete games before returning to the Pirates. He's been on the disabled list since July 6 with a groin strain.
