Dirks hits RBI single in rehab reboot

Dirks hits RBI single in rehab reboot

DETROIT -- Outfielder Andy Dirks restarted his rehab assignment Saturday at Triple-A Toledo, going 1-for-3 with an RBI single and two strikeouts while playing five innings in left field.

It began the third different rehab stint for Dirks, who missed just over a week with a hamstring strain in his rehab from back surgery. Dirks told John Wagner of the Toledo Blade that he has had to remain patient through the stops and starts.

"They've been patient," Dirks told The Blade about the Tigers. "They understand that a body heals in its own time. We've been heading in the right direction. It's taken a little longer than I'd like it to, but at the end of the day I have to be healthy to perform."

If Dirks can stay healthy, he'll be on track for a potential September callup.
