Royce Lewis has been recovering faster from his second ACL surgery and was seen walking in the clubhouse on Tuesday.
Lewis had his second ACL surgery in as many years on June 21 and appears to be ahead of schedule since he has begun walking three weeks after the procedure. He noted that he has been 'aggressive' in his rehab and has potentially pushed his return timeline to 10-11 months from an initial 12-month timeline.
Royce Lewis has been diagnosed with a partially torn ACL in his right knee and is out for the season.
This is such an awful break for the budding superstar, who just had ACL reconstruction surgery on the same knee. This was his first season back in two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic and then his surgery, and he was not only dominating both the majors and minors in his time at each stop, but was learning the outfield on the fly. His estimated recovery time from surgery is 12 months so with any luck, he can return to baseball again next season. Downgrade him in dynasty formats, obviously, but mostly, just have sympathy for the young talent.
Royce Lewis has yet to resume any sort of baseball activities since being placed on the IL with a bone bruise. There is no timeline for his return.
Lewis was placed on the IL on May 30th after crashing into the OF wall and is still in the healing process of his recovery. He also still hasn't had a second MRI. At this rate, a late June return is looking like a best-case scenario for LEwis.
Royce Lewis has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a right knee bone bruise.
Lewis was just recalled from Triple-A St. Paul and only had one at-bat before he injured the knee, colliding with a wall attempting to make a catch against the Royals. A tough situation as Lewis was looking to get rolling after hitting a respectable .308 with two home runs and five RBI in his last 11-game stint in the majors. In a corresponding move, the Twins have recalled Jose Miranda to replace Lewis on the active roster.
Royce Lewis has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee.
Despite Rocco Baldelli indicating earlier in the day that Lewis was probably headed to the IL, the Twins will now wait a few days for the swelling to go down before they evaluate Lewis further. This is pretty much the best case scenario for fantasy managers given Lewis's history with knee injuries, and they should now try to hold him if possible with him looking less likely to miss significant time.
