Jarrod Dyson begins jogging
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com (5/28/2013) Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson received medical clearance to begin jogging Tuesday, the Kansas City Star reports. Dyson is recovering from a high right ankle sprain.
"I still feel a little pain there," he said, "but it’s just a process I’ve got to go through. I went 90 feet four times. They were just trying to get a gauge if the pain stayed with me after I stopped. It’s going away when I stop."
Dyson does not have a timetable to return for the Royals.
"I don’t know anything yet," he said. "Maybe after (the club) comes back off the road (following a weekend series at Texas), I’ll know a lot more. I feel I’m going to be all right. I’ve made some pretty good progress and, hopefully, I’m back in the lineup within a couple of weeks."
