Choo to stop at each level of Minor Leagues
CLEVELAND -- As he makes his way back from a broken left thumb, Shin-Soo Choo will get a taste of just how different the quality of pitching talent is at each Minor League level.

Choo started the process of climbing the organizational ladder Monday, beginning his rehab assignment at Class A Lake County. He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout.

"Assuming everything works out well and he feels comfortable, I would say a week of rehab games," said Indians manager Manny Acta.

After playing the outfield Monday, Choo started at designated hitter Tuesday night. He'll get the day off Wednesday so the club can evaluate his progress before advancing him to the next rung on the club ladder.

"It's going to be an everyday evaluation type of thing," Acta said. "He has to feel comfortable."
