3/11 Injury updates
Xavier Nady had no unusual soreness in his right elbow after playing in Wednesday’s game, his first Cactus League action. Nady is coming off his second Tommy John procedure, which he had in July. He’s not expected to be allowed to “start firing away” from the outfield without restrictions until June but says that won’t keep him from playing.
“Hopefully, you drive in more than you throw out,” Nady said.
* Andres Blanco has a new, lighter brace on his right knee and is making progress. He sprained his knee in a play at second and was to be sidelined 10 to 14 days.
* Angel Guzman may see Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., on Monday. Guzman has a torn ligament in his right shoulder, near the arm pit, and is considering surgery. He’s already had elbow and shoulder procedures done, both by Andrews.
