Description: Braves left-hander Mike Minor (shoulder) threw his first bullpen session of the spring Wednesday and will throw every other day for at least another week before progressing to live batting practice. SOURCE: mlb.com
Insight: Minor felt soreness in his shoulder when he reported to spring training, the result of a month of inactivity following a urinary tract procedure on Dec. 31. "My mechanics are obviously not all there," Minor said. "My leg was coming out, and I was leaning back more. That's not something I want to do. I want to be more compact and get back to what I was last year. But for this being the first time, I think it went pretty well." He hopes to be back by the second or third week of the season.
