Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon wraps up rehab assignment with the Modesto Nuts

The Rockies' outfielder figures he will re-join the big league squad for their series in Arizona beginning Friday.

Visalia, Calif. -- After dealing with turf toe to begin the season, and eventually suffering a stint on the disabled list because of it, Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon was back on the field this week during a rehab assignment with the High-A Modesto Nuts.

The outfielder, who went 0-for-4 on Tuesday night, and then 1-for-4 with an infield single on Wednesday night, is likely to head back to the Rockies on Thursday or Friday, most likely meeting the team for their series in Phoenix over the weekend against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Above, look through some of Blackmon's work during his rehab assignment in the California League. You can see the 29-year-old take batting practice and get a few game at-bats in Wednesday evening's game, a contest the Nuts would lose late against the host Visalia Rawhide.
