Luis Salazar Progressing Well In Hospital; More Surgery To Come

Good news from Mark Bowman today: Luis Salazar is progressing well and is already talking about returning to work.

John Schuerholz visited Salazar this morning, and Frank Wren reported that he is doing better, is with his family and is eager to return to work.

Salazar had surgery on his facial fractures Wednesday, followed by surgery that focused on his left eye Thursday. More surgery will be done on his eye this weekend, and doctors are not ready to report on the extent of the damage until after that procedure.

The line drive that hit Salazar came off the bat of Brian McCann, who is returning to the lineup today after taking himself out of the lineup Wednesday following the hit and not playing at all Thursday. McCann was pretty shaken up by the situation, and he spent a good amount of time with Salazar and his family.

Perhaps the best news from Bowman is the following, when talking about whether he can return to regular duties as manager of A+ Lynchburg:

Wren and his staff are just encouraged that doctors have told them that they don't see why he couldn't handle the role once he gets healthy.
