ARLINGTON, Texas – Right-hander Tommy Hunter just completed a pregame pitcher's fielding practice session on the field here at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
It's hot here in the Metroplex, so Hunter -- currently on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain -- worked up a lather covering first base, fielding comebackers and bunts in front of the mound.
If all goes well, Hunter will throw from a mound again tomorrow. The club hasn't decided whether it will be a third bullpen session or a minor league rehabilitation assignment.
Interestingly, right-hander Ryan Webb was also out there with Hunter doing PFP drills. It's not certain why he'd be out there, too, but manager Buck Showalter said before yesterday's game that there was a physical concern about one of the relievers.
After the game, he said he believed the club was in the clear in avoiding a DL stint. Webb did not pitch in Tuesday's game and last pitched Saturday in Houston.
