Rehabbing outfielder Milton Bradley joined the Sacramento River Cats on Saturday. Even more A's could be on the way next week.

On Saturday, A's outfielder Milton Bradley began his rehab assignment with the Sacramento River Cats. Bradley had been on the DL with a strained calf. He isn't expected to be in Sacramento for more than a few days.

Bradley looked to be shaking off the rust in his first game, as he struck out in all three at-bats during Sacramento's 8-3 loss to Las Vegas. He started the game in centerfield and played six innings. He was running without restriction during the game.

A's DH Mike Piazza was scheduled to join the River Cats on Sunday for a rehab assignment that would have taken him through at least three games. Piazza has been on the DL with a separated right shoulder since early May, when the A's were playing in Boston. However, on Sunday, the A's decided to delay Piazza's rehab to allow him to build up his throwing arm and get ready to catch.

By next Wednesday, the River Cats could have two more A's players on the roster. Outfielder Bobby Kielty is expected to start his rehab from a strained calf by the middle of next week. Kielty has been out since April with the injury.

Pitcher Rich Harden may also make an appearance in Sacramento. Harden hasn't pitched since being injured during a startin mid-April. He is expected to return to the A's as a reliever, at least temporarily. The A's are considering sending Harden to Sacramento on Wednesday to throw an inning before coming off the DL.
