Gentry cleared to begin rehab assignment

ATLANTA -- Outfielder Craig Gentry (fractured right hand) is set to begin a rehab assignment after experiencing no issues while taking batting practice in Sacramento on Saturday.

"Gentry had a good day," Athletics manager Bob Melvin said. "Felt great as far as taking BP and so forth."

Melvin did not announce specific plans for Gentry's rehab assignment on Sunday, but Gentry will begin his path back to the Majors with either Triple-A Sacramento or Class A Advanced Stockton. 

"Whoever's closest in town," Melvin said.
