Gonzalez, Pie Updates
who has been slowed by some lower back tightness, played catch today for about
15 minutes with setup man Jim Johnson.
They did some long toss on one of the back fields at Ed Smith Stadium and Gonzalez even crouched down to give Johnson a
target at one point. He also ran sprints and appears to be moving well.
Gonzalez was optimistic about throwing in Wednesday’s game,
which would be his first game situation since being pulled early from Saturday’s
intrasquad game. Gonzalez faced just two batters before he exited with back
Felix Pie, who
hasn’t played in a game since Wednesday, threw the baseball today and also did
some running. He may have hit, but I didn’t get a chance to see that because I
was watching Kevin Millwood’s start.
He told me this morning he was going to throw and swing the bat, so I’ll
confirm that tomorrow.
Pie has a minor case of left shoulder tendinitis, an injury
that occurred mostly as a result of his weight room work.
