Stewart continues recovery from wrist injury

CHICAGO -- Third baseman Ian Stewart, on the disabled list with soreness in his left wrist, has been able to hit off a batting tee but that's it.

"I'm not sure if the cortisone shot gave it much relief," Stewart said Tuesday. "We'll keep taking it slow."

He received the shot last week after seeing a specialist at the Cleveland Clinic. Stewart began hitting on Saturday.

"It's still a little sore, so we're taking it slow," he said.
