Bader continues to rest, and the longer he stays away from baseball activities, the longer his next acceleration period will be, Shildt acknowledged.

For both Hicks and Miles Mikolas, the All-Star break will be a barometer for a clearer timeline, even though August is said to be the best scenario. (Last updated: June 3)
