David Fletcher is progressing in his recovery from hip surgery and has been cleared to begin playing catch again as reported by MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger. (Rhett Bollinger, MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact:

Fletcher underwent surgery back in May 10 to repair his left and right abductor muscles. After visiting a hip specialist in Philadelphia on June 2 who was happy with his progress, Fletcher has been cleared to beginning playing catch. Fletcher is optimistic he can return in July. When healthy, Fletcher is a fantasy asset, and his poor start prior to the injury (.158, 0 HR, 2 RBI, 0 SB) can be partly attributed to health. Fletcher is worth a speculative add and stash if he is available in your league.
