Mercado on wrist: ‘Thankfully it was nothing’ |

From Mandy Bell:

The Indians haven’t put a timetable on Oscar Mercado’s return from his left wrist sprain that he sustained on Thursday, but if you ask him, he believes he’ll be ready by Opening Day.

“Yeah, I think so,” Mercado said on Sunday afternoon. “I think I should be good by then. I trust my ability to recover and I trust [the training staff] in there.”

“I’ve dove for balls, caught my wrist and stuff, it’s never hurt,” Mercado said. “It’s looked ugly, but it’s never hurt. That was one where I dove and I knew it was awkward, but the pain was pretty big, so I got scared. But thankfully it was nothing. The guys in the training staff have done a great job of building a program for me to follow and hopefully speed up the recovery.”
