Seay still not throwing, but no re-exam yet
Lefty reliever Bobby Seay was held back from throwing once again Saturday, furthering his absence to two weeks and counting since he reported pain from his first bullpen session. But he has not yet been sent out to be re-examined, and probably won’t until next week.
Seay has been diagnosed with bursitis around his left biceps and tendinitis in his rotator cuff. Head athletic trainer Kevin Rand said Friday afternoon that they were hoping to get Seay throwing again Friday or Saturday after trying a different course of treatment. Neither day did Seay feel well enough to play catch, let alone throw off a mound. He’s feeling better than he was a few days ago, Rand said, but still not well enough to pitch.
Any second look at Seay’s shoulder probably won’t take place until at least Monday, when team doctors are in town for minor league physicals. There has been no talk of sending Seay to a specialist quite yet, and probably won’t be until team doctors get another look at him.
