Olivo begins rehab assignment at Triple-A
SEATTLE -- Miguel Olivo, on the 15-day disabled list with a right groin strain, started behind the plate and hit third for Triple-A Tacoma on Monday night, going 1-for-3 with a run before being lifted after the fifth inning as the Mariners catcher began his rehab assignment.

"We're going to catch him tonight, DH him tomorrow, catch him again on Wednesday and then go from there," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said.

Wedge also noted that it's not necessarily important for Olivo to catch back-to-back games before he rejoins the Mariners, but he does need to stay behind the dish for a full nine innings.

While Olivo has been on the DL, Jesus Montero and John Jaso have been sharing catching duties.
