Yesterday Hardball Talk reported that Kelvim Escobar couldn’t pick up a baseball. He wasn’t far off.
Escobar can pick up a baseball, but is choosing not to until he is cleared by doctors.
Escobar has arrived in camp and has told reporters that he isn’t allowed to pick up a baseball, which makes Johan Santana’s statement a little strange.
He does believe he’ll be ready for opening day.
