Lotta stuff going on at the ballyard today. Here’s the quick-and-dirty, and I’ll have lots more on all these topics later in the day.
* Duncan is cleared to play and in the lineup, playing left and batting second.
* Rolen went through a full, extensive workout. Ran the bases at pretty much full exertion; he’s taking grounders at third base as I write this. Also taking BP today. My guess is he’ll sit out tomorrow and play Thursday, but he’s definitely making progress.
* Mulder threw off a mound, but it was really only at about 50 percent. It didn’t even really look all that much like pitching. Very deliberate. Still, it was a step. Off a mound is progress.
* Wilson is at a point now where he expects to have surgery, and it’s simply a question of how invasive the procedure will be. That decision will be made in the coming days.
