According to Detroit Tigers reporter for MLive Media Group James Schmehl, Tigers part-time outfielder Matt Tuiasosopo will soon head out on a rehab assignment. He hit yesterday and was one a few players who took early BP today. Leyland said he expects Matt Tuiasosopo will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday. — James Schmehl (@jamesschmehl) July 2, 2013 Matt was optimistic when asked how his strained rib responded to his first full pregame workout Monday. "It's really good," he said. "No pain at all. It went really, really well." It was the first time Tuiasosopo participated in a full workout since being placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 20 with a left intercostal strain. He took batting practice, fly balls in the outfield and ran along the right-field line without experiencing any pain. "I did the whole gauntlet," he said. "I've felt perfect the past couple days." Tuiasosopo, who has hit off the tee the last two days, is eligible to rejoin the Tigers on Sunday in Cleveland. Barring a setback, it appears the 27-year-old will not need to spend additional time on the disabled list. It's possible Tuiasosopo could begin a minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Toledo prior to his return. The Mud Hens return to Toledo for an eight-game homestand Wednesday. When Tuiasosopo is activated, the Tigers are expected to option outfielder Avisail Garcia back to Triple-A Toledo to clear a spot on the active roster. Garcia has struggled since being called up June 17, recording only one hit in his last 20 at-bats with nine strikeouts. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
