Ned Yost media session: August 30, 2014
Eric Hosmer began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha this afternoon and he finished the day with two RBI, including the game-winning single in the ninth.
Manager Ned Yost expects Hosmer to get 15 to 20 at-bats before being activated from the disabled list.
“Just get his eye back a little bit,” Yost said. “We just want to get some game-type at-bats under his belt so that when he gets back up here he’s ready to go.”
In other injury-related news, Omar Infante tested his sore right shoulder this afternoon before the game and will start at second base while batting second. Omar has not played since Monday and has missed four games.
