Tejada's early start

Miguel Tejada already is taking ground balls at third base about 30 minutes before players are required to be outside.

Juan Samuel is hitting him grounders, much sharper than yesterday's three-hoppers, and Tejada is making the throws to second. Yesterday, players stationed at third base just flipped the ball into foul territory.

Chris Tillman is still scheduled to throw in the bullpen today. His back didn't stiffen up during the night.

Brad Bergesen will throw off flat ground again tomorrow, take a day off and hopefully throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

"That's kind of the rough plan right now," he said.

Nolan Reimold said his Achilles was a little sore after yesterday's workout and batting practice session, "but nothing major."

"I just iced it yesterday to stay on top of it," he said. "It's getting better and better."
