Daily steps forward have Zobrist feeling good

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Ben Zobrist (lower back) continues to make progress in moving toward regular baseball activity.

When giving his daily update on that progress, Zobrist told reporters that he felt good.

"I got to run today," Zobrist said. "I got to do some exercises, get on my feet and move around."

Zobrist speculated that he could go outside on Monday and "do some more stuff."

"I might get to do some twisting stuff tomorrow, they said," Zobrist said. "Like everything I did today was easy, didn't bother me or anything, so I'm sure we're going to advance it tomorrow. Get closer to being 100 percent."

Zobrist noted that he had his own thoughts about his progression.

"I'd like to do some stuff on the field on Tuesday with the guys," he said. "I may not be able to do everything. They may not let me swing 100 percent yet. But maybe I'll be able to stretch out there and throw, and do some ground balls and things like that. I think they might let me do some ground balls on my own tomorrow. Just easy. But I'm hoping by Tuesday I can get out there and do them with everybody. … We'll see how it goes. It kind of depends on whether I'm sore tomorrow from some of the stuff we did."
