The 17 year old phenom, Wander Javier, hit in the batting cage with Tommy Watkins throwing to him. Javier did not disappoint hitting two over the fence in his short outing. Javier says his hamstring has fully healed and he showed no ill effects of it in the field while working on grounders, running the bases for situational play, and performing sliding drills.
And more clarification, I've been re-brushing up my Spanish lately, so I asked him in his native tongue how the hamstring was and he gave a much more elaborate response than yesterday when asked in English. In translation for what I got, he said it was so-so, he hurt it again when he thought it was good in the Dominican. The team is holding him out of sprinting drills for the time being but is having him do all the basic fundamental drills. When I asked him about playing in games, he said that he would be playing. On a physical comp, he reminds me of Jorge Mateo of the NY Yanks.
He did get his first taste of autograph hounds today too, signing a few bats and balls for dealers.
