Norris to begin rehab assignment Monday

Minor League catcher Derek Norris, on the seven-day DL because of a sore left wrist, is going to Viera, Fla., on Monday. He hopes to swing a bat that day and play in an extended spring game Wednesday.

Norris has had problems with the wrist since having the hamate bone removed.

"The issue isn't really from my hamate, it's some bruising that's caught in between two different bones that surround the hamate," Norris said. "They did the nerve tests that hide under the hamate bones, and there's nothing wrong with it. There's just some bruising that's got to work itself out."
