Astros manager Dusty Baker said Sunday that Castro (knee) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sugar Land during the upcoming week, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Baker didn't provide a specific day for the start of Castro's rehab assignment, but the veteran catcher looks like he'll soon be ready to take the next step forward in his recovery program after he caught a bullpen session Sunday. Castro has been on the shelf since Aug. 29 with the right knee injury.
