In other camp news:
-Jordan Montgomery and Ben Heller were the only pitchers throwing sides today, as early work was a bit limited by mandatory players meeting with Major League Baseball.
-Chance Adams will likely start Wednesday's game in Sarasota against the Orioles, and Greg Bird, Aaron Judge, Austin Romine and Brandon Drury are among the bigger names taking the trip.
-In case you missed it last night, Reggie Jackson was scheduled for surgery on his right knee this morning, which he injured when he fell during a walk Monday morning. Best wishes go out to Mr. October on a speedy recovery!
