Stoffel (shoulder) started playing catch earlier in March, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The non-roster invitee was experiencing some shoulder discomfort toward the end of February, but it seems like the pain is beginning to subside. However, the Pirates may opt to take things slowly in his recovery process given the extended length of spring training, so don't be surprised if Stoffel doesn't find his way into spring games for a while longer.
