Pirates catcher Ryan Doumit has been cleared to resume baseball-type rehabilitation immediately, after a CT scan taken this morning at Allegheny General Hospital showed good healing in his fractured wrist.
The scaphoid bone needed to show sufficient healing before Doumit could resume activities involving the wrist. He still will wear the cast for a short period but could be throwing as early as the rest of the week. His timetable for a full return to the Pirates was expected to be mid-June if all went well with the scan, as it did.
