Twins' Shaun Anderson: Beginning rehab assignment

Anderson (hand) is starting his rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports. Finger blisters landed Anderson on the 10-day injured list June 6 two days after he allowed four runs in 3.2 relief innings against the Royals. It's unclear exactly how much rehab work the righty will require, and thus when he'll be ready to return to the Twins' bullpen.
