Lenny Dykstra took some batting practice with the Philadelphia Phillies yesterday, his first action with the team since breaking his collarbone in a car crash May 6.
Dykstra swung the bat in the indoor batting facility beneath Veterans Stadium, with hitting coach Denis Menke looking on.
"He took about 20-25 swings," Menke said. "His swing looked good, but he wasn't cutting loose."
Dykstra said he took 30 to 40 swings.
"By the end of the hour, I was taking full swings," said the outfielder, who hopes to make his return July 11.
