Mercer (quadriceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Friday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Mercer has been on the injured list since early May with a right quad strain but appears to be closing in on his return. The 32-year-old previously began a rehab assignment in late May only to suffer a setback. Mercer figures to require a handful of rehab games to get back up to speed before rejoining the Tigers.
