Young Progressing, But Timetable Remains Unclear

Delmon YoungThe Phillies said last month they hoped to see Delmon Young play in a Spring Training game before they headed north to Philadelphia on March 28.

That is not going to happen, but Young continues to progress from microfracture surgery on his right ankle in November. He worked out in the outfield for the first time today. He also ran the bases with the athletic training staff monitoring him.

Ruben Amaro Jr. said Young could face live pitching in a simulated game sometime in the next week.

“I’m just going day by day,” Young said before his workout. “If I feel good then we’ll keep going along. If I don’t then we’ll back off. I really don’t know yet. But I feel good. I’m happy with the progress. You want everything to happen right away, but you know it’s going to take time to build back up.”

Amaro said there remains a chance Young will rejoin the Phillies before May 1, but he wouldn’t say if his timetable has been pushed back or not.

I wonder if Young will offer simulated enthusiasm when playing in a simulated game?

Any chance Delmon can help us to get his brother Delwyn’s autograph?
