New York Yankees infielder Brendan Ryan is expected to join the Thunder for a rehabilitation assignment tonight against the Richmond Flying Squirrels at ARM & HAMMER Park at 7:05pm.
Ryan, a seven year Major League veteran, has been sidelined all season with a lower back injury that he sustained in Spring Training.
