Torii Hunter was back in uniform and in the Angels' clubhouse Monday for the first time in more than two weeks. But getting him back in the lineup could take another day or two.
"I'll be in there tomorrow, hopefully," said Hunter, who remains on the restricted list. "We're still trying to see how I feel after these workouts today."
Hunter had been with his family in the Dallas suburb nike zoom kobe vii poison dart frog for sale of Prosper since May 14, when his son Darius McClinton-Hunter, a high school junior, was arrested and charged with sexual assault.
"This is my son. This is my blood. For him to go through this and watch him cry every night, it's pretty tough," Hunter said. "I don't wish this on any father out there."
Hunter, speaking about the case publicly for the first time, was unable to go into detail. But last week defense attorneys said they have evidence backing an account that the teenage girl has retracted her accusation.
"We're hopeful that it doesn't even go to court because we feel that there's no case," Hunter said.
"I have to let the justice system play its nike zoom kobe vii poison dart frog red blue part and let my attorneys do what they have to do. But we're ready to go to court no matter what."
If the case is litigated, Hunter said he would return to Texas. But he knew it was time to rejoin the Angels when he took his son to see "The Avengers" on Friday and the boy laughed for the first time in two weeks.

"My family, they all seemed like they were a lot better," said Hunter, who also thanked the Angels for their support during the ordeal. "My wife can handle the situation. My attorneys can handle the situation. My three boys, they were very upbeat.
"Through all this stuff, my family and I, we got a little closer. And we were able to talk a lot."
Hunter did make one brief appearance on the field on Memorial Day, catching the first pitch from Oscar Jimenez, the son of a Marine lieutenant killed in Iraq eight years ago.
Hiroki Kuroda is at home on the road
With the New York Yankees making their only regular-season nike zoom kobe vii poison dart frog visit to Southern California, former Dodgers pitcher Hiroki Kuroda got to spend time with his wife and two school-age daughters at the family's West Los Angeles home. And although he welcomed that, he said he has no regrets about leaving the Dodgers after four seasons to sign a free-agent contract with the Yankees.
"It's a team with great players and a great history, just like the Dodgers. A great team," Kuroda, speaking through interpreter Kenji Nimura, said of New York. "I like playing there."
Kuroda, who is 4-6 with a 3.96 earned-run average in 10 starts, said his agent remained in contact with the Dodgers last winter, but when the team didn't make a formal offer by early January, he accepted a one-year, $10-million deal with New York.
Of the four Angels on the disabled list, reliever LaTroy Hawkins is the closest to returning, Manager Mike Scioscia said. Hawkins, who fractured the little finger on his pitching hand three weeks ago, has been throwing bullpen sessions and the Angels said he may pitch in a minor league game this week.
Outfielder Ryan Langerhans (separated right shoulder) played light catch Monday, but outfielder Vernon Wells (surgery on right thumb) and catcher Chris Iannetta (fractured right wrist) are probably weeks away from resuming baseball activities.
