Checking up on Ceda
Reliever Jose Ceda, who has some right shoulder discomfort, has been cleared to begin playing catch on Friday.
On Thursday, about 9:15 a.m. ET, Ceda went to the doctor, but not for his shoulder. He was completing some exams related to his physical.
Obtained from the Cubs in the offseason for Kevin Gregg, Ceda threw a bullpen last Saturday, the day pitchers and catchers began workouts. The team has been taking it easy on him since.
