It is being reported by MLB.com reporter Anthony DiComo, that first baseman Lucas Duda did some running for the first time today since being placed on the disabled list back on May 23rd. Duda also played catch prior to tonight’s game as well.

Duda has been progressing slowly from the stress fracture in his back, but it looks like he could hopefully be ready for a rehab assignment at the beginning of next month. If he is able to continue to progress over the next couple of weeks and begin a rehab assignment at the beginning of August, he could possibly return to the Mets lineup sometime in the middle to end of August. Duda’s timetable all depends on how his back responds to baseball activities and how much game action he will need to round into form.

The 30-year old first baseman was hitting .231 with seven home runs and 19 RBI’s in 39 games prior to hitting the disabled list.
