Seay update: Not good, not bad

The expected throwing session Bobby Seay was supposedly going to have today didn’t take place, head athletic trainer Kevin Rand confirmed a little bit ago, but that doesn’t necessarily mean more bad news. Rand said they decided with the course of treatment they were taking to give him one more day of rest before going back at it Saturday. He did not get re-examined, and any new tests wouldn’t take place until early next week, when team doctors are back in town for minor league physicals.

Seay’s shoulder is better than before, Rand said, but still not where they want it to be for him to get back to pitching. That doesn’t mean Seay is headed for the disabled list to start the year, not when they have four weeks of spring training left. Still, if Seay usually needs 10 appearances to get ready for the season, he might have to go with less this spring.
