Scott Elbert recovering from tendinitis


No. 5 starter candidate Scott Elbert had a recent bout of shoulder tendinitis, reports Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, but after being shut down for 10 days had a pain-free bullpen session Thursday. He is scheduled to throw again Monday.

In a separate blog post, Gurnick noted that reliever Travis Schlichting had a pretty significant health scare over the winter, dealing with Gilbert's syndrome, "which results in increased bilirubin levels and, in Schlichting's case, is believed to have caused fatigue and nausea that led to (a 30-pound) weight loss."

Hiroki Kuroda and Hong-Chih Kuo, among others, are having no issues so far.
