Anthony Rendon hits in cage, takes grounders

0 Comments

Anthony Rendon was placed on the disabled list just before the start of the 2015 regular season with a sprained MCL in his left knee and then he strained his left oblique muscle in early May while trying to rehab that knee injury. It’s been a frustrating several weeks for the young budding star, but he is finally beginning to make some significant progress …

Chase Hughes of CSNWashington.com reports that Rendon took grounders, did some running, and hit in an indoor batting cage Wednesday afternoon at Nationals Park. “It was a good day for him,” said Nationals manager Matt Williams. “We’re glad to have him back here on the road to recovery. Right now we’re trying to get him as healthy as possible.”

Rendon, 24, should be ready at some point in early June if he can avoid further physical setbacks.

He hit .287/.351/.473 with 21 homers, 83 RBI, and 111 runs scored in 153 games last season.
