Mending Adams, Pettibone pitch in Minors game

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Mike Adams and Jonathan Pettibone both pitched Saturday in a Minor League Spring Training game at Carpenter Complex.

Adams, who is recovering from right shoulder surgery, struck out two in one scoreless inning. He threw 12 pitches (11 strikes). Pettibone, who is recovering from inflammation in his right shoulder, walked two and struck out one in three scoreless innings. He threw 40 pitches (22 strikes).

Both hope to be game-ready by the middle of next month.

"I'm still looking at April 14-15 as my return date," Adams said. "If anything pops up before then, we'll address it. But right now, I'm not going to try to set my timetable any earlier."
