Welcome to July — Now Here are the Walking Wounded
With the all injuries this season, we’ll start July with some positive news:
First baseman Aaron Boone, placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a sprained left knee, is off crutches and riding a stationary bicycle. He won’t see any action on the practice field for another three days.
Right-hander Ricky Nolasco, on the 15-day DL with elbow inflammation, will begin throwing five times a week in Jupiter.
Wait, there’s more…
Center fielder Alejandro De Aza, who was moved from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL on June 16 with a hairline fracture of right ankle, will begin jogging next week.
Maybe one day this season we’ll actually have most of our players healthy.
