Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Tuesday that he is "very encouraged" by how injured infielder Jed Lowrie looks, adding that "he looks great, he's moving around great."
Callaway added that Lowrie "feels great hitting" and that there is "definite progress there."
However, Callaway is not yet ready to give a timeframe for Lowrie's potential return.
Lowrie, who has been sidelined since the start of Spring Training with a capsule sprain in his left knee, has been rehabbing with the Mets since Opening Day, while fellow injured infielder Todd Frazier began a rehab assignment on April 2 and seems to be getting close to a return.
The Mets signed the soon-to-be 35-year-old Lowrie to a two-year, $20 million contract this winter in order to add versatility to their lineup.
