Bonderman: "I think I'll be playing catch in about two days."
There’s a lengthy explanation for the injury that Jeremy Bonderman is dealing with, and it involves the scapula, but it comes down to normal inflammation, according to head athletic trainer Kevin Rand. They’re going to let the round of medication run its course, and once the pain goes down, he’ll start throwing.
Bonderman said this morning that the soreness has pretty much gone away, and it’s mainly inflammation restricting his shoulder. He’s pretty optimistic that he’ll be able to get back on the mound quickly, since it’s been less than a week since his last mound session.
“I think I’ll be playing catch in about two days,” Bonderman said.
That said, Bonderman isn’t making guarantees about his return. When asked if he’ll be ready for Opening Day, Bonderman said, “I hope so. Honestly, I couldn’t tell you.”
