Hawkins to begin rehab assignment on Sunday
ANAHEIM -- Reliever LaTroy Hawkins, who has been out since May 6 with a broken right pinkie finger, will begin a rehab appearance with Class A Inland Empire on Sunday, with the hope of returning to the Angels' bullpen two outings later.

"Most likely he'll need at least two," manager Mike Scioscia said. "He'll go tomorrow, then we'll see how he comes out of it."

Hawkins, with a 1.08 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 8 1/3 innings this year, injured the pinkie while fielding a comebacker that resulted in a game-ending double play against the Blue Jays a little less than four weeks ago. The 39-year-old, now without a splint, threw a 20-pitch simulated game on Friday and came out of it fine.

Jered Weaver, nursing a lower back injury, played light catch on Saturday.
