Fukudome to begin rehab assignment soon
LOS ANGELES -- White Sox outfielder Kosuke Fukudome has been taking batting practice and will possibly begin a rehab assignment on Monday.

Fukudome said his focus is to get healthy first.

"[I'm] going to hit tomorrow and see how it feels and go from there," Fukudome said Saturday through an interpreter.

Fukudome has been on the disabled list retroactive to June 4 for a strained right oblique. He was 7-for-41 before the injury.

"Where he was when he got hurt, he didn't have a bunch of at-bats and didn't swing for a while," Ventura said. "It would be nice for him to get some at-bats and feel right when he comes back."
