Olson has allowed a homer and double, and walked a batter, in two innings.

Matt Albers reports to the minor league camp in Sarasota, Fla. on Monday to begin rehabbing his right shoulder. He won’t pick up a baseball for three to four weeks before doing some light throwing. He still hopes to return by late August or early September.

“I'm pretty excited about it,” he said. “The tear in the labrum is pretty small, so as long as I get rid of all my other problems, I should be OK.”

Albers conceded that he still could undergo surgery if the pain doesn’t subside in four or five weeks. “But right now, we'll try to rehab it and take my time with it, make sure my shoulder feels better,” he said.
