Pearce heads to spring training facility in Florida

Reserve outfielder Steve Pearce, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis in his left wrist Friday, received an injection Monday and will head to the Orioles’ spring training facility in Sarasota, Fla., on Tuesday.

Pearce said he will stay away from baseball activities for three or four days before resuming drills and exercises to strengthen the wrist.

 “Right now, we’re just going to let the wrists calm down and stay away from here being tempted on swinging,” Pearce said Monday after the Orioles’ 5-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians.

In 28 games this season, Pearce was batting .235 with three home runs and nine RBIs. He said the wrist bothered him for about a month before he was placed on the disabled list and he did exercises to “numb up” the pain so he could play through it. He hopes he will be able to return when his 15 days on the disabled list are up.

“I don’t get the luxury to sit around,” Pearce said. “I got to hit, but so only time it’s going to heal is to stay off of it and don’t use it. That’s what we’re going to do right now. We did the injection and I think we’re going to let it heal.”
