Will the second time be the charm for Astros outfielder Michael Brantley? The club announced this afternoon that he will begin a rehab assignment with Sugar Land tonight. He has been out all season while rehabbing from shoulder surgery last year. He went on one rehab assignment earlier this year with Sugar Land before having a setback, forcing him to shutdown from baseball activities. The Astros brought Brantley back on a one year, twelve million dollar deal this season that had incentives to have it reach sixteen million based on his number of plate appearances this year.
