A step in the right direction.

I've got good news and I've got less good news. What do you want to hear first? Good? Great, I'm glad were on the same page on in this one-sided conversation. (clears throat, sounds trumpet) George Springer has been cleared to resume most baseball activities.  As for the bad news, that clearance does not included hitting and there is still no timetable for his return.

This is a good sign for Springer that he is on track to return before the end of the season. Springer was placed on the 15-day disabled list on July 2 after Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez hit him in the hand with a pitch. The injury was diagnosed as a nondisplaced fracture, resulting in Springer being the shelf for six to eight weeks.

Springer was hitting .264 (73x276) with 14 doubles, 13 home runs, 29 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 75 games this season.
