Sandoval will begin his rehab assignment with San Jose on Saturday, where he will either be the designated hitter or play five innings at third base. He will play five innings on Sunday and if all goes well, Sandoval could join the Giants for the flight down to Los Angeles Sunday night.

Casilla will throw a light bullpen session today and then turn it up on Saturday and Monday. Casilla will travel with the Giants on the upcoming road trip and throw to hitters in Los Angeles on Wednesday. He could begin a rehab assignment in 10-12 days.

Lastly, Brandon Crawford missed Wednesday's game and will miss tonight's game after spraining his right index and middle fingers. He is available to pinch-run and bunt.
