Turner begins rehab assignment

By Adam Rubin

PITTSBURGH -- Justin Turner is scheduled to continue a rehab assignment Sunday with Class A St. Lucie, a team source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Turner went 0-for-4 with a walk as the DH for the Gulf Coast League Mets on Saturday.

He has been on the disabled list since June 17 with an intercostal strain on his left side.

The rehab assignment beginning signals Turner could be back as soon as next weekend's second-half-opening series against the Philadelphia Phillies.
