- Rich Dubee said Pedro Martinez (stiff neck) “will pitch when Pedro is healthy.” It is expected to be sometime next week.
- Left-hander J.C. Romero threw an inning in the Instructional League in Clearwater, Fla. He felt fine. If he feels OK tomorrow, Ruben Amaro Jr. said Romero could be activated Monday.
- Brett Myers threw off the mound today, but just as a short test. He said he felt fine. Amaro said Myers could throw a full bullpen session Monday, a day earlier than had been scheduled.
- Chan Ho Park threw about 30 pitches in Clearwater. He could throw a bullpen Monday.
