Chavez to start rehab assignment Monday

Eric Chavez has been feeling well enough over the past few days to start a rehab assignment on Monday in Sacramento, and manager Bob Geren said Chavez will be there for a week. If things go well, it’s possible Chavez will rejoin the team when they return home on June 21 against Cincinnati.

Coco Crisp is still on schedule to play in an intrasquad game on Monday. Rajai Davis won’t play today but Geren is optimistic that he’ll be ready to go by tomorrow against the Giants. He ran yesterday in the outfield at about 70 percent and was supposed to increase the intensity today. Geren said Matt Carson is feeling OK.

Jack Cust will play some outfield during the series at AT&T Park, Geren said, depending on the matchup. If he’s not in the lineup, he’ll be a pinch hitter.

Brett Anderson is extremely bored these days. He’s not throwing yet and has no timetable yet to begin throwing.

The lineups:

A’s — Patterson LF, Barton 1B, Sweeney RF, Suzuki C, Cust DH, Kouzmanoff 3B, Gross CF, Ellis 2B, Pennington SS, Cahill P.

Angels — Aybar SS, Kendrick 2B, Izturis 3B, Hunter CF, Matsui DH, Napoli 1B, Rivera RF, Ryan LF, Wilson C, Santana P.
