The Colorado Rockies announced that Gold Glove third baseman Nolan Arenado will begin a rehabilitation assignment with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox starting Saturday.

 Arenado will is scheduled to  take batting practice today with the team and if all goes well will likely start for the Sky Sox in the team’s 6:05 PM game against the Iowa Cubs at Security Service Field.

Arenado has been on the disabled list since May 25 with a left middle finger mallet fracture. The Sox are in the midst of a nine-game, eight-day home stand with home games scheduled through July 3.

Arenado, 23, was the second rookie third baseman to be awarded the Rawlings Gold Glove in the 57-year history of the award (Frank Malzone in 1957). He finished seventh in the 2013 National League Rookie of the Year voting after hitting .267 (130-for-486) with ten homers, 29 doubles, four triples, 49 runs scored and 52 RBI in 133 games.
