Angels catcher Chris Iannetta continues his road back from wrist surgery. He will join the Angels' high-A California League affiliate as he begins his rehab assignment.

The Los Angeles Angels continue to gel as a team and have pushed their way back to respectability in the American League West. They're hoping to do a lot more than that throughout the next two-thirds of the 2012 season and hope to soon return to full strength.

One of their key everyday players is continuing his road back to rejoining the team. Chris Iannetta, who landed on the disabled list in early May and needed to undergo wrist surgery, will begin a rehab assignment over the weekend with Angels high-A California League affiliate Inland Empire 66ers.

Although the schedule for the team is not known as of yet, Iannetta is expected to play in two games with the team over the weekend. Iannetta played with the Modesto Nuts when he was still in the minor leagues, but this will be his first return to the California League since 2005.

Iannetta started 26 games as the Angels' catcher before landing on the disabled list this season, including catching the no-hitter thrown by Jered Weaver on May 2.
