Ynoa (hand) tossed 30 pitches in live batting practice before Thursday's game and is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, Paul Casella of MLB.com reports.

Atlanta has yet to announce which affiliate the right-hander will be assigned to or what his workload might be Thursday, but Ynoa seems firmly on pace to rejoin the big-league staff in August. Given his 3.02 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 50:11 K:BB through 44.2 innings prior to his injury, the 23-year-old will probably rejoin the rotation immediately, but a long relief role could allow Atlanta to activate him from the IL a little earlier rather than getting him fully stretched out first.
