- David Phelps became the first pitcher to graduate to sim games yesterday. He threw one in the morning to a handful of MiL hitters. Looks like he's the early favorite to start next Tuesday's first ST game against FSU.
- The top name throwing BP was Manny Banuelos. Joe watched him pitch and said he was happy with what he saw. Other BP pitchers included Matt Thornton, Shawn Kelley, and Matt Daley.
- The major injury of the day, and the first of camp, was Tyler Austin's latest wrist setback. He's hoping to only miss a few days.
- Other injury/health issues include: Alfonso Soriano's lingering flu, Nik Turley's arm tightness, and a small calf issue for Jim Miller. All 3 were held out of team activities yesterday.
