DETROIT -- Ian Krol, on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, will begin a rehab assignment as early as Friday, according to Tigers manager Brad Ausmus.
Ausmus said the location of Krol's rehab stint will be determined by the location of Detroit's farm teams. Triple-A Toledo is at Columbus on Friday. Class A West Michigan plays at Fort Wayne this weekend.
Krol will throw a bullpen session Wednesday and is eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday, when the Tigers host the Dodgers.
