A few notes
*Zach Britton reported that he felt good following a 60 pitch session of long toss today. The plan for Britton –who has been dealing with left shoulder inflammation — is to throw Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of next week.
*Jim Johnson is dealing with some lower back tightness and manager Buck Showalter told reporters Johnson will be brought along slowly to start camp.
*Left specialist Clay Rapada –who was released by the Orioles a few days ago– has agreed to terms with the New York Yankees. The deal, which is a Minor League contract with an invite to big league Spring Training, is pending a physical Monday in Tampa.
