A few quick injury updates for ya before the game starts:
-Clay Condrey (oblique) will throw a bullpen session Monday in Clearwater.
-Chad Durbin (back) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session today, felt good, and will appear in his first rehab game 8/5 in Clearwater.
-Brett Myers had the day off, will throw a bullpen Monday.
-After grounding out in a pinch-hit at-bat to end the game last night, Shane Victorinio (knee) was out of the lineup today. He's feeling better and hopes to play Tuesday.
-Reports from Rochester, N.Y. indicate that my dad, Ray Martino, has a nasty case of poison ivy from chasing golf balls into the woods. No word on a timetable for his recovery.
