SARASOTA, Fla. – Kyle Bradish will extend his flat-ground throwing to 90 feet on Saturday in the latest tweak to his progression.
Bradish played catch Tuesday from 75 feet in the stadium outfield, with media in the press box trying to calculate the distance, and hasn’t experienced any discomfort in his right elbow.
“I feel good,” he said this morning. “No pain, no soreness when I’m throwing. Recovery has been good. So yeah, feeling pretty normal.”
Exactly what the Orioles want to hear, even a week into spring training.
Bradish became one of the bigger camp stories after his platelet-rich plasma injection last month and confirmation from executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias that last year’s Game 1 starter in the Division Series would go on the injured list.
