Extra Bases

A few pre-game updates from the ballpark

A few updates this morning:

* Casey Kelly will start Tuesday’s game against the Rays in Port Charlotte. He will throw 60-65 pitches. Tim Wakefield will work a few innings in a minor league game then come back on Saturday against the Nationals.

* Mike Lowell took some grounders just now and will take batting practice. His left knee is improving and he could play tomorrow.

* Jeremy Hermida (right hamstring) is out until Tuesday at the earliest.

* J.D. Drew is just getting a few days off, just as Mike Cameron did. A little preseason rest never hurt anybody.
