Right-hand reliever Scott Proctor, who has been shut down because of some discomfort from scar tissue, said it was a “relief” after meeting with a team doctor Sunday.
“He just reinforced everything we had talked about before,’’ said Proctor, who had elbow surgery in October. “He said it’s just inflamed. It’s not surprising. It’s something that was expected. He said I was probably trying to do too much (to get back), and that it was nothing to be alarmed about.
“It’s always a relief to have someone tell you there’s nothing to be alarmed about,’’ he said. ““I’ll be shut down for another day and probably start throwing again Wednesday or Thursday. They plan on taking an X-ray (Monday or Tuesday).
"I 'm not worried about dates. My main focus is April 6 (Opening Day),'' he said. "Every day is Ground Hog Day to me.''
