Luke Scott took 25 swings in the indoor cage and completed three rounds of live batting practice. No longer confronted with pain in his left shoulder, he expects to play tomorrow night in Toronto.
“I didn’t turn it loose, but I put some good effort into it and it felt pretty good, so I should be ready tomorrow,” he said.
“I didn’t go all out 100 percent. I just went nice and easy, but that was a good start.”
Scott was able to pull the ball, something he couldn’t do on Tuesday.
Scott can’t commit to pinch-hitting tonight until he confers with head athletic trainer Richie Bancells. It would depend on the type of treatment he receives. If he’s icing the shoulder, it wouldn’t be a good idea unless he can heat the area.
“If they want to put that traffic on it, so be it,” he said.
