Blanco just began to field ground balls Saturday, and he said he expects to begin hitting off a practice tee Tuesday.
"We've been doing good so far," Blanco said about his recovery. "We'll keep pushing."
Blanco hit .271 with 13 doubles, one triple, four home runs and 21 RBIs in 155 at-bats before the injury.
Home run cycle
The Phillies on Saturday night allowed a solo home run, two-run home run, three-run home run and a grand slam in a 12-1 loss to the Mets. According to Elias Sports Bureau, it was the first time the Phillies allowed a "cycle of home runs" since May 17, 1979, at Wrigley Field in the infamous 23-22 victory over the Cubs.
