The issue is likely not that serious, but the team will give Rosario some time to rest. Rosario should return to the lineup soon. He hit .292/.315/.486 in 449 at-bats last year.
The first returns were encouraging for right-hander
Jimenez was among the best pitchers in the game from May forward last season after a terrible 2012. He left Cleveland for free agency and signed a four-year contract worth $50 with Baltimore.
Rutledge missed six days due to an ankle injury. He was able to pass all his tests this week, and was deemed ready for game action. Rutledge will compete for a utility spot on the team's 25-man roster. He hit .235 in 285 at-bats last year.
Chacin was able to get through Thursday's session without any pain in his shoulder. He plans to double his workload during Friday's session. Chacin said he was "moving forward," but stressed that these things take time.
Chacin posted a 3.47 ERA in 197 1/3 innings last year.
Cuddyer said he will go through a normal schedule Friday, but won't play in the team's spring game. He added that he would be in the lineup if it was the regular season. Cuddyer was hit in the shoulder by a pitch a few days ago, but the injury is not serious.
Cuddyer hit .331/.389/.530 in 489 at-bats last year.
