A few injury updates:
– Michael Fulmer (torn meniscus): threw one inning and 12 pitches Wednesday in an extended spring training game without any issue. He will proceed on a standard starter’s schedule to stretch out his arm to prepare for game action.
– Luis Mateo (elbow): He’s resting/rehabbing in Port St Lucie. He left his start on April 15th. The idea is that he will begin throwing in the next week-10 days depending on how his elbow progresses. One scout who saw Mateo in the Florida State League really liked him; he saw him as an above average big league starter – like a #2 level guy.
– Cory Mazzoni (elbow): According to Lynn Worthy, he is throwing again, and is looking towards a bullpen in the next week.
