Pederson (groin) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday or Thursday and will likely be activated from the 10-day disabled list Friday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

It appears Pederson won't have to miss more than the required 10 days following his groin injury that landed him on the DL on April 24. So long as he suffers no setbacks during his minor-league rehab assignment, he'll be activated prior to Friday's game against the Padres.
