Bader (ribs) has started some light throwing and swinging a bat, the team's official site reports.

The relatively quick return to some type of physical activity is encouraging for Bader, who just went on the injured list May 25. Nevertheless, manager Mike Shildt remains unsure of whether Bader will be healthy enough to be activated when first eligible Saturday, but there is optimism his time on the shelf won't extend much further that under any circumstance.
