Some minor league health updates from executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias:

Infielder Richie Martin began a hitting progression today and should come off the injured list by the end of July or early August. Left-hander DL Hall will resume throwing in two weeks and likely pitch again this season. Infielder Joey Ortiz will undergo surgery in the next few days to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder and should be fully recovered next spring.

Infielder Terrin Vavra, who’s been out with back soreness, should get back in Double-A Bowie’s lineup by mid-August. Infielder Anthony Servideo will begin playing in rehab games next week in Sarasota, Fla., and should return to Single-A Delmarva about a week after that date. Pitcher Carter Baumler’s recovery from Tommy John surgery is going well and he should be full-go next spring.

Dr. Nilo Azad, Trey Mancini’s oncologist from Johns Hopkins Hospital, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch to him before tonight’s game.
