Anthony Rendon could resume his minor league rehab assignment tomorrow

Anthony Rendon’s return from a left knee sprain hit a snag this week due to some tightness in his side, but he could resume his minor league rehab assignment as soon as tomorrow.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said that Rendon went through a full workout today. Assuming he feels good tomorrow, he’ll return to the lineup with Double-A Harrisburg for the first time since last Saturday. The Nationals were originally hoping that Rendon would be ready to make his season debut during this weekend’s four-game series against the Mets, but he’ll likely spend a few more days in the minors to get back into the swing of things.

The Nationals were talking about potentially having Rendon split time between second base and third base upon his return, as Yunel Escobar has grown more comfortable at the hot corner. It’s unclear whether that’s still the plan, but either way, getting him back will be a big boost to their lineup.

Rendon, 24, batted .287 with a .351 on-base percentage to go along with 21 home runs and 17 stolen bases last season.
