Crowe Ahead of Schedule

According to the Akron Beacon Journal today, Trevor Crowe took batting practice and was running the bases at full-speed, and now could be back as early as Thursday. Considering this originally looked really serious, this is very good news!

``His recovery is going very well,'' said Antonetti, who was on the field for batting practice monitoring the Tribe's first-round pick (14th overall) in the 2005 draft.

``He ran the bases today full speed, so we'll see how he responds tomorrow and go from there. Barring any setbacks, he could be back in the lineup by the end of the week.''
