Yankees pitching prospect Ty Hensley is on the mend and is also returning to the mound just weeks after being hospitalized in the holiday attack that left him with a broken jaw.

Ty Hensley's agent says the prospect's arm felt good throwing Sunday, but that his jaw is still wired shut, and there's still pain. #Yankees— Brendan Kuty (@BrendanKutyNJ) January 13, 2015
Despite his jaw still being wired shut, Hensley has continued his offseason workout regimen in hopes to go in to spring training in as good of shape as possible. He even released a video of himself working on his delivery and he looks pretty good for someone with a broken jaw. Hopefully he can continue to work on his game, despite the injuries, and finally have a healthy season with the Yankees.
As far as the legal ramifications of the incident goes, here is a copy of the probable cause affidavit that has been filed against Anthony Morales, his alleged attacker. The document provides an eyewitness account of the events that happened the night of the incident and also calls for the arrest of Morales, a football player who tried out for the Carolina Panthers this year.

Morales has since been charged with aggravated assault and battery and has pleaded not guilty. A preliminary hearing will take place on February 5 at the Oklahoma County Courthouse.
