Karstens Sidelined With Sore Shoulder

According to Rob Biertempfel on Twitter, Jeff Karstens missed his scheduled bullpen session today due to sore right shoulder. He will still be able to play catch and soft toss. Karstens told him he is “just being smart” and not trying to get hurt by overdoing it early in Spring Training. Stolmy Pimentel also missed his schedule BP. According to Biertempfel, he was a late arrival to camp.

Tom Singer of MLB.com added right afterwards that Karstens will stay off the mound for a couple days

UPDATE 10:02 AM Bill Brink has now posted on Twitter that the injury is tightness in his right bicep(throwing arm) and no MRI has been taken
