Inge swings in cage

He’s still dealing with the oblique strain, and probably will be for a while, but he said he felt good taking swings off of soft tosses in the cage. As long as he can do that, he should be able to play, though he admits he’s probably going to feel the effects of the oblique for a little while longer before it recovers.
