Colorado Rockies utility man Ty Wigginton will go to Triple-A Colorado Springs on a rehab assignment Wednesday and Thursday. Wigginton, who on May 3 was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 27, is eligible to come off the disabled list Thursday. Tracy Ringolsby reports Wigginton is expected to rejoin the Rockies on Saturday.

Wigginton is hitting .233 with two home runs and 10 RBI. His best game was his last before the injury, when he went 3-for-4 with a home run and a double on April 26 against the Chicago Cubs.
