Early notes

Garrett Atkins and Luke Scott have reported to camp.

Chris Tillman was removed from the field after experiencing back spasms, but it wasn't his day to throw. He's expected to be fine.

Tillman's back tightened up after yesterday's session.

Koji Uehara bounced some throws in front of catcher Craig Tatum during his session, but Tatum blocked each one cleanly.

You can focus on the positive or the negative of that last sentence.

Alfredo Simon's velocity was outstanding. It's hard to believe he's less than a year removed from Tommy John surgery.

Reliever Jim Miller wasn't invited to spring training, but he'll eventually report here with the Triple-A players and could get into a game or two.
