House increasing activity after getting hit by batted ball

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) Toronto Blue Jays reliever T.J. House is slowly increasing his physical activity, almost a week after he was hit on the head by a line drive during a spring training game.

House was cleared to run on a treadmill for five minutes Thursday, a day after he rode a stationary bike for seven minutes.

House was taken off the field in an ambulance March 10 after getting struck in the ninth inning of a game against the Detroit Tigers. He was hospitalized overnight, then released.

He says: ''Feeling good. ... Surprisingly, I didn't really have much of a problem.''
