Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Brandon Marsh will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Reading tonight, the team announced.

Marsh did not travel with the team to London to stay behind to prepare for a return to the team. Marsh has been sidelined with a hamstring strain he suffered in a June 2 game against the Cardinals on Sunday Night Baseball while he was rounding second base.

He is eligible to come off the injured list today, and after a short rehab stint, he could be activated and join the team in Baltimore this weekend.

Marsh has been the teams most productive outfielder this season, hitting .265 with six homers, 26 RBI in 52 games.

What happens with Marsh returns to the roster?

With Marsh close to a return, the team could send David Dahl back to the minors, but Dahl has been productive in his time in the majors, hitting .333 with two home runs and three RBI in just five games.

That would make a pretty crowded outfield, but the team could also send Weston Wilson back to the minors, and keep Dahl around.

There have been numerous reports that the Phillies are looking for more outfield help, and that could mean Johan Rojas or Christian Pache could end up being be the odd man out.
