Slow rehab : Please discuss his recovery with his orthopaedic surgeon. 3-6 weeks average. Slow and gradual return to activity and remember he has a long life ahead of him and needs to heal this completely before he resumes baseball activity. Sorry he is missing out but give him time to heal. Till then keep him active running, biking. See the AAOS.org website. Good luck
