Lefty Olsen progressing in Florida
Left-hander Scott Olsen is continuing to build up his arm strength, but according to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com, he is still a ways away from joining the club.
Olsen has been sidelined with a hamstring injury that has kept him in Bradenton, Fla., for extended spring training. He has been throwing bullpen sessiona and has appeared in one extended spring training game.
General Manager Neal Huntington told Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com, “Good days and other days where, it’s not pain, but it’s just not coming out the way he wants it to. So we take a step back and let him continue to rebuild arm strength. The thing that we sometimes lose is that he was coming off of an [arm] injury to finish the season last year and probably would have been behind in Spring Training as it was. The hamstring injury ultimately set him back even further.”
