BOSTON -- Nationals first baseman Chris Marrero started a rehab assignment with Class A Potomac on Friday. He was set to start Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Salem Red Sox.
On Thursday, Marrero went 1-for-3 with a double starting as the designated hitter for Class A Hagerstown. Marrero is currently on the 60-day disabled list with a torn hamstring, which he suffered during winter ball as he attempted to stretch for a ball at first base.
It's not known when Marrero will be with the big league team. Last year, Marrero played in 31 games for the Nationals and hit .248 with 10 RBIs.
