Robertson (knee) could start a rehab assignment within the next week, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Robertson has made quick progress recovering from a June 24 arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. The nearing rehab assignment means that the second baseman could possibly return to the majors in late July and give the Rays some much-needed infield depth. Prior to the injury, Robertson was slashing .202/.311/.281 with two home runs, 22 runs and 15 RBI in 59 games.
