Morales, Trumbo progressing
Recovering first baseman Kendrys Morales is feeling good in his recovery and will do some sprints on the field tomorrow. Morales, who has missed the last 1 1/2 seasons with a broken left ankle, says he has had no swelling and feels more confident about Opening Day than last year now that he had the second surgery to clean the area out.
“This year, I’ve felt a lot better compared to last year. I can do any exercises that they give me,” Morales said in Spanish. “Very different from last year. I think for the start [of the season], I should be ready.”
Mark Trumbo has continued hitting and has gotten a lot of work at third base, fielding grounders and making throws across the diamond. He’ll get re-imaged on the 28th in hopes of running full speed and getting to the point he can field slow rollers.
