Chad Billingsley made a rehab start Sunday throwing 1.2 innings, giving up one run, two hits, a walk, a HBP and two strikeouts.

Sunday's start was his first on his current rehab assignment, which is expected to one of many appearance before being deemed ready to be activated from the disabled list. Once back int he mix Billingsley is expected to be used in long relief, but could work his way back into the starting rotation if one of the current pitchers was to go down with an injury as the season progresses.
