Mets shortstop Amed Rosario will participate in light baseball activity today at Citi Field, the team said.
Rosario will throw today and hit tomorrow, manager Terry Collins said, adding that the team is trying to be cautious.
The 21-year-old Rosario was still experiencing swelling in his bruised right index finger on Thursday as he missed his fourth-straight game, with Collins noting Friday that the finger swelled up so much that Rosario culdn't swing.
Rosario hurt his finger swinging on Saturday and it swelled up on Sunday. He went 0-for-3 and was hit by a pitch, but was unable to grip the bat late in the game and was replaced by Matt Reynolds in the bottom of the eighth inning.
X-rays on his finger came back negative.
Rosario is hitting .245/.272/.427 with four home runs, two doubles, three triples, and four stolen bases in 32 games (110 at-bats) since he was promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas last month.
