• Top position player prospect Jonathan Schoop was re-evaluated Wednesday by a doctor in California, who confirmed the original diagnosis of a stress fracture in his lower back. He will rest for four weeks, and manager Buck Showalter said he could be playing in five to six weeks.
• Dylan Bundy (tightness in flexor tendon) is pain free and has been for about a week with full range of motion, Showalter said. Bundy will see Dr. James Andrews on June 3, just before the six-week mark from when he got a platelet-rich plasma injection.
• Wilson Betemit (right knee sprain) and Brian Roberts (strained right hamstring) each played catch and did hitting drills off a tee as they progress toward possible returns from the disabled list.
• Backup catcher Taylor Teagarden (dislocated left thumb) caught seven innings in a extended spring game Wednesday and will DH on Thursday, although he could go to one of the team's affiliates and start a rehab assignment instead, Showalter said.
