Cardinals right-handed pitcher Shelby Miller will not throw his scheduled side session today for precautionary reasons. Miller told the training staff that he was feeling some soreness in his right shoulder after throwing from the mound on Monday. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said there is no indication that the issue is serious.
Royals manager Ned Yost left camp on Tuesday and at 5 p.m. had his gall bladder removed. He was back at the club’s training facility in Surprise, AZ on Wednesday morning with an ice pack on his stomach, underneath his jersey. Yost said,”It’s been bothering me for two years and, being hard-headed, I never got it checked. I didn’t want to fly to Kansas City to do it because I knew I’d be up and going the next day,” he said.
Yost left camp shortly before the Royals’ intrasquad game and went to St. Joseph Hospital in Phoenix for the surgery by Dr. Bob Evani, one of the D-backs’ physicians.
