NEW YORK -- Outfielder Sam Fuld, who has been on the disabled list since May 8 with a concussion, has started light baseball activities, and he could ramp it up once he has three good days in a row.

Fuld returned from visiting concussion specialist Dr. Micky Collins in Pittsburgh on Thursday, and he played catch on the field at Target Field upon his return.

He progressed to hitting off a tee on Friday and could gradually increase his workload if he continues to feel better, according to Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony. But there's still no exact timetable for his return, as it's dependent on when Fuld's concussion-like symptoms are gone.

Antony also added that Fuld's visit to Collins was just for reassurance and that the tests showed he's making good progress in his recovery.

"I think as much as anything it was just peace of mind," Antony said. "He was told to go ahead and proceed."

Antony said Fuld had another good day on Saturday, and the Twins are hopeful he'll join the club for batting practice on Wednesday when they return from their road trip.
