Chapman (knee) will be back on the field Friday for a full array of baseball activities, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Chapman was released from the hospital this past Sunday after receiving a four-day regimen of antibiotic treatment for a left knee infection. The latest development is certainly a positive one, but there is still a possibility that the rookie will need a short minor-league rehab stint before being activated from the disabled list.
Chapman (knee) was scheduled for a Sunday release from his multi-day hospital stay, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
The rookie had been laid up since Thursday due to cellulitis in his left knee, with an antibiotic IV serving as his main course of treatment. Chapman was originally scheduled to leave the hospital on Friday, but the extra time was apparently necessary to adequately treat the infection. Although the 24-year-old's exact return date remains up in the air, the hospital discharge is obviously a key step in the recovery process.
Chapman (knee) will spend one more night in the hospital before being discharged, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Chapman is making good progress with the knee infection, but will not be eligible to return until the end of next week. Barring any setbacks, Chapman should continue to be a key name in A's lineup moving forward.
Chapman is in the hospital receiving an antibiotic IV for the cellulitis in his left knee, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He's expected to be discharged tomorrow, and the Athletics believe he'll likely return from the 10-day disabled list when eligible.
The third baseman was just getting a clear opportunity at playing time before a knee infection halted him. The medical treatment seems to be working, though, and barring a setback, Chapman should keep only a normal DL stay.
Chapman was placed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday with left knee cellulitis, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Chapman clubbed 16 home runs at Triple-A Nashville and earned a recent call-up, but he's dealt with knee issues the last few days and will spend some time on the sidelines. Matt Olson will return from Nashville and may assume a decent workload in at least the short term.
