Matsui: "We're Progressing Forward"

Via Yahoo! Sports:

Left fielder-designated hitter Hideki Matsui took a step forward in his rehab program for a sore left knee, reporting no problems on Friday, one day after starting a running program.

“The knee was fine, so I’m happy about that,” Matsui said through a translator.

Matsui decided not to undergo surgery last month in hopes of playing again this season.

“The fact that the activities I had yesterday and the way the knee responded today, honestly I do feel positive in the sense that we’re progressing forward,” Matsui said.

Matsui was unable to work out on the field Friday due to rain. He did ride a stationary bike and took 54 swings during a hitting session in an indoor cage.
