Mets slugger Michael Conforto said he is feeling good but hasn't started swinging a bat yet as he works his way back from a freak shoulder injury. Conforto spoke about his rehab Wednesday as he took part in the Mets' annual coat drive at Citi Field. The Mets slugger, who dislocated his left shoulder on a swing and miss during an Aug. 24 game against the Diamondbacks, said he has been rehabbing the shoulder 3-4 times a week. "Super monotous, super boring," Conforto said about his rehab, split between New York and Seattle. "It's a grind in a different way. Usually at this point I'm kicking it up a notch in my workouts and trying to get into great shape. Right now it's all about the shoulder. "My shoulders have never been in better shape," Conforto joked. "It might help my throwing arm." He said in his normal, day-to-day life his shoulder feels fine, but that he has yet to be cleared to do exercises that put stress on the surgically repaired shoulder. Conforto, who said he has been assured by doctors that there is almost no chance of repeating the injury, won't change the mechanics of his swing.
