Hiroyuki Nakajima OAK DL                   Worked on turning double plays from short on Monday. (Nikkan Sports 4/15/2013) ... From MLB.com's Jane Lee: Nakajima (hamstring) may not be too far behind him, but he needs to show he can run the bases first before he returns to any game action. ... If he runs the bases this weekend, then maybe we're closer with him as well," manager Bob Melvin said Monday. "You have good days and bad days, and there are days he hasn't felt great. When we were on the road trip, I think there were a couple days he wasn't making progress, but here recently he's said he feels very good, so I think we're on the verge of getting him on the bases. We'll have a better indication of where he is once he does that." (MLB.com 4/15/2013)
