Wuertz nears end of rehab stint

|
OAKLAND -- A's right-hander Michael Wuertz is scheduled to make his third rehab appearance with Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday, when the River Cats are slated for an unusual 11:30 a.m. PT start.

Wuertz, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 3 with right shoulder tendinitis, has allowed just two hits and a walk with one strikeout in two innings of rehab work so far.

Following a 2009 season in which he made a team-leading 74 appearances while compiling a 2.63 ERA, Wuertz appeared in just two Spring Training games due to the sore shoulder.

The 31-year-old Wuertz is in the midst of his first career stint on the DL and said on Tuesday that he may undergo one more rehab outing following Wednesday's outing, depending on the results.
