Longoria (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Longoria has missed two months due to a left shoulder sprain, but he began a hitting progression in late July and will now return to game action. The 35-year-old will play five innings Thursday before increasing to seven innings Friday as the Giants ramp up his workload, according to Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site. Although Longoria will presumably require several rehab outings before he's cleared to rejoin the major-league club, his minor-league appearances are the final step in his recovery process. The acquisition of Kris Bryant at the trade deadline figures to cut into his playing time at third base.
Longoria (shoulder) could start a rehab assignment later in the week, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Longoria started a hitting progression near the end of July and continues to ramp up his baseball activities. If all goes well, the team could send him out on a rehab stint later in the week.

Longoria (shoulder) will increase his baseball activity as of Friday, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports.
It was reported last Saturday that Longoria has a chance of returning soon after next week's All-Star break, and Friday's update seems to go along with that timeline.

Longoria has been on the injured list with a sprained left shoulder since June 6. He's been targeting a mid-July return and Friday's update indicates that he remains on track to be activated sometime around the All-Star break. Wilmer Flores should receive the bulk of the playing time at the hot corner while Longoria continues to recover.
The Giants placed Longoria on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a sprained left shoulder. Manager Gabe Kapler said X-rays on Longoria's shoulder returned negative, but the veteran third baseman is expected to remain out for 4-to-6 weeks, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.
Based on the estimated recovery timeline, Longoria will likely remain on the shelf through or shortly before the All-Star break in mid-July. The injury is a tough blow for the 35-year-old, who was enjoying a resurgent season with an .892 OPS through 186 plate appearances on the season. Wilmer Flores will start at third base in place of Longoria in Sunday's game against the Cubs, and Flores could end up handling everyday duties at the position while Longoria is on the shelf.

Longoria went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 11-6 win over the Dodgers.

He is one of the many reasons the Giants have been able to keep up with the other powerhouses in the National League West. The third baseman is slashing .267/.357/.493 with eight home runs, 26 RBI and 25 runs in 171 plate appearances.
