BAND-AIDDavid Wright, as has been attempted and reported over the last few weeks, has finally resumed baseball activities in Port St. Lucie, Florida today. He has been out with a hamstring issue, which turned into a back issue and after attempting to be cleared last Monday, received a week of treatment up until his clearance today. Due to his now extended absence, he will certainly need at least a week in minor league games to get back on track and should hopefully (barring another setback) rejoin the team in the first week of June.

BAND-AIDTravis d’Arnaud, who was cleared to resume baseball activities last week (sans swinging a bat) has been cleared to swing as of today. He has been out with a broken finger, sustained in an at-bat in mid-April. Terry Collins says that Travis will be back once he can play a full 9 inning game, so hopefully we see him back in the orange and blue before the end of the month.
