Giants trainer Stan Conte indicated that Alou's rehab was going well but that there was no timetable for his return until he begins running and cutting drills. He'll likely be out for a few more weeks at least.

I just picked him up, it is only 5 days. He has better #'s than almost everyone left on my ww, and half the at bat's. I think he is worth a shot. But I would also not expect him to make it all year w/out going on DL again.

Alou not ready: Outfielder Moises Alou, on the disabled list with a severe ankle sprain, replied "probably not" when asked if he'd play during the Giants' six-game road swing to Miami and New York.

Trainer Stan Conte concurred.

"It's not impossible but not probable," said Conte. "If you go back to Mo's calf, the predictions have always been he's close but he tells us when it happens. It's still at the 80-85 percent level. He did well this weekend, but his ankle is still swollen.

"I'm concerned about the outfield play -- for him to go out there a day too soon wouldn't be a smart thing to do. We'll keep pushing. We're talking [being on the DL] four weeks on Friday, and this is a legitimate six-week injury -- that's how bad it was."
