Rockies' Ian Desmond: Nearly back to all baseball activities

Desmond (hand) began hitting off a tee Thursday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

The $70 million man is nearing a return to full baseball activity. The next step for Desmond to take is taking batting practice, but it seems like that should come in the next few days barring any setbacks. A better timetable for his return to the Rockies' lineup should emerge once he progresses further.
