Pirates catcher Ryan Doumit who has been sidelined since April 19 after undergoing surgery on his right wrist is progressing nicely with his recovery, the injury was originally expected to keep him from playing for eight to 10 weeks.

“I threw today and did some dry swings,” Doumit reported before Sunday’s game with the Detroit Tigers.

Doumit was asked if he will have another CT scan of his wrist.

“That’s a good question,” Doumit said. “I don’t know if I’ll even have one - as far as I’m concerned I was cleared by the doctors two days ago to go ahead and resume baseball activity, and it’s a progression and I’m going to ease into it. A couple of days 45 feet, a couple at 60 feet throwing and progress out to 150 feet. The same with dry swings - dry swings now and a couple days hit off a tee, a couple days flips and then batting practice. I’m getting there.”

Doumit isn’t sure about a timetable for his return to the lineup.

“I think it’s going to depend on how long my rehab assignments going to be,” Doumit explained. “But as of right now I know I’m on a two week throwing and hitting program and we’ll see where we go from there.”

Is catching bullpen sessions.

“I'm antsy. I'm anxious to get back.", said Doumit.
