MINNEAPOLIS -- Travis Ishikawa and Cesar Izturis will likely rejoin the Brewers for their Interleague series against the White Sox next weekend after beginning rehab assignments on Saturday.
Ishikawa went 2-for-4 with 3 RBIs in the second game of a double-header for Triple-A Nashville on Saturday. Izturis went 0-for-3 in the first game, but "felt good," Roenicke said. Izturis was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring on May 26, while Ishikawa was sidelined with a left oblique strain.
Milwaukee's current plan is for Izturis to return on Thursday's off-day before the team's three-game series with the White Sox that begins on Friday, Roenicke said. Roenicke hopes Ishikawa will be back with the big league squad in time for Saturday's game.
