Chris Nelson making surprising progress


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2013) Angels third baseman Chris Nelson, who has been out since Aug. 28 due to a strained hamstring, is making surprising progress and may be able to return this season when once it was thought he'd be done, MLB.com reports. 

Nelson could come off the DL next week after taking batting practice and fielding ground balls at third base. With Luis Jimenez still dealing with an injury, the Angels need him at third. 

"It's a great bounce-back for him," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Hamstrings, like we say, have a mind of their own. You never know. You get some, they last for two months. You get some that look like they're going to be two months, and they're three weeks. He still has some work to do, might be about a week, but considering when he did it, you could've been looking at the whole season. He looks like he'll be in the earlier window of what a hamstring can be."
