FORT MYERS, Fla. - Justin Duchscherer threw the first part of today’s bullpen session on a half mound and the rest on a full mound.
Manager Buck Showalter said Duchscherer felt “really good,” and the club will have a more definite plan for him tomorrow.
Koji Uehara will pitch in a Triple-A game on Friday. Showalter still believes that Uehara will be ready for the April 1 opener against the Rays.
Brendan Harris will be sidelined one or two more days after having a mole removed from his back.
Brian Roberts apparently wanted to make today’s trip to Fort Myers so he could get some right-handed at-bats against Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano.
“It was probably more his idea than mine,” Showalter said.
