Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com writes that Chris Iannetta (wrist, forearm) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this week.
Iannetta was originally expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment early last month, but he's been working through forearm soreness over the past couple of weeks. The 28-year-old originally landed on the DL in early May due to wrist surgery.

Chris Iannetta (wrist, forearm) will begin throwing to bases next week.
Iannetta resumed his throwing program late last month, but apparently he must just be playing some light catch. If he can progress with no setbacks, he'll begin a rehab assignment later this month before likely returning sometime in August.

Chris Iannetta (wrist) will be cleared Saturday to restart his throwing program.
Iannetta suffered tightness in his forearm when trying to prepare for a rehab assignment and has been doing strictly hitting-activities since. "Hopefully we'll see some progress this week and get a better idea on when he's going out on his rehab assignment," manager Mike Scioscia said. Iannetta is working his way back from wrist surgery. His timetable is a bit of a moving target, but he could return before the All-Star break if all goes well.

Chris Iannetta (wrist) is likely at least two weeks away from a return.
"Hopefully it's not weeks," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said, "but it's not day to day." Iannetta's rehab assignment was recently pushed back due to forearm tightness, and he resumed throwing Monday. It sounds like he probably won't begin an assignment until next week.
