Minnesota Twins first baseman Joe Mauer and starter Ricky Nolasco are scheduled to begin minor league rehab stints next week.

Assistant general manager Rob Antony says both players will head to Class A Cedar Rapids and could be ready to return to the majors the following week.

He says Mauer (strained right oblique) will drive to Cedar Rapids on Sunday, work out Monday and start playing Tuesday. He might join the team in Houston, where the Twins play Aug. 11-13. A stop at Triple A also is possible.
