Buxton still isn’t able to take batting practice but Ryan said the former No. 2 overall draft pick had progressed to dry swings and tee work in addition to taking fly balls in the outfield.
“There’s some encouragement coming out of there,” Ryan said.
Ryan said there is a timeline for Buxton’s return, but he did not want to share it publicly because previous timelines have “meant nothing” for the five-tool talent.
Even with Buxton’s lengthy absence, Ryan said there is no organizational fear surgery will ultimately be needed.
This from Berardino at the PP. Similar info coming out from Bollinger. Assume the Strib just isn't quite as fast in getting the info out.

Seth and I will try to get our stuff together and record a new podcast. We're not going to put this audio on iTunes. Look for a "Hour of Power-cast" later this week.
