Giants' left fielder Pat Burrell made his first rehab start with the Single-A San Jose Giants on Wednesday, going 2-4 with one RBI against the Stockton Ports.

"It would be nice to get some at bats for him so if something happened, which happened last road trip," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said after the Giants' win Wednesday. "He would be ready with some ABs under him." Bochy also stated Burrell would have the day off on Thursday.

Burrell was placed on the 15-day disabled on Aug. 3 because of a bone spur in his right foot.
