"It's a little better but it's still sore. There's not a lot of progress in terms of anything new," Beckham said. "I still have a couple of more days of doing nothing in terms of baseball and then get back into it."
Last year, Beckham, 27, hit .267 with 22 doubles, five home runs and 24 RBIs. He was also plagued by injuries and played in only 103 games in 2013. He played in 150 games in 2011 and 151 games in 2012.
"It's very tricky, so I'm trying to take it easy as I can so I can make it to Opening Day," he said. "That's the goal until they tell me no."
