SARASOTA, Fla. — Orioles outfielder Henry Urrutia received treatment on a sore throwing shoulder before Saturday’s Grapefruit League home opener, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.
“He’s OK to hit, but he went in to get treated about a half-hour ago,” Showalter said today before batting practice.
Other items of note:
-- Showalter said he’s tentatively scheduling Ubaldo Jimenez to make his spring debut Friday, but that’s not set in stone.
-- Right-hander Suk-min Yoon’s debut date is unclear, because he will miss three to four days getting his work visa processed in Canada. Showalter said he still hopes for Yoon to pitch between March 4 and March 7.
-- First baseman Chris Marrero tried throwing to test his oblique injury but still felt discomfort, so he seems to be progressing slowly. Alexi Casilla (sore hamstring) is progressing, but is still not close to returning. But Quintin Berry (back spasms) tested his back during today’s workout.
