A’s outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is making steady progress from the strained muscle in his left hand.

According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Athletics manager Bob Melvin announced on Tuesday evening that Cespedes has been cleared for “all baseball activity” expect hitting.

That means he’s playing catch, shagging balls and running. And should soon begin working with a tee.

Cespedes is eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list early next week and seems likely to be ready right around then.

The 26-year-old Cuban center fielder was batting .245/.319/.434 with five home runs, five doubles, four stolen bases and 21 RBI through the first 119 plate appearances of his major league career.

    Great news for this A’s fan. I’m looking forward to Yo’s return and MannyTime! In a couple eeks, we might just have a batting order that resembles a real major league team.
