Lake Buena Vista, Fla. - So it’s Tommy Hanson day here at the ballyard, otherwise known as Sunday. Or Duke-Carolina day, for some of us, who will appreciate if Hanson works fast for an ole 4 p.m. tipoff. Whaddya say?
But hey, baseball wise, I’ve got plenty of news for you here. Sit tight and let me give you a little rapid fire. And then I’ll pass on some comments Frank Wren gave me yesterday about Hanson.
Off we go…
Jordan Schafer took some “dry” swings today and some off the tee and came away with his shoulder feeling OK. He’s got a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder that’s kept him out a week. The last time he tried to take bp, he ended up in a lot of pain.
This time he’s taking it slow, with 30 swings today. And tomorrow he’ll take some live pitching at Braves camp. (It’s an off day, but Kawakami will get a simulated game in.) If that goes well, Schafer expects to get in a game Tuesday vs. the Astros in Kissimmee.
