MacDougal held back from throwing
By Tony Jackson
Mike MacDougal hasn't thrown a bullpen session yet during spring training because he felt something in his lower back while taking ground balls during fielding drills Wednesday.
The decision was made by the medical staff to hold him back for precautionary reasons, but the situation isn't thought to be serious. MacDougal participated in all other drills on Thursday morning, including taking more ground balls.
