Left-handed pitching prospect Robert Carson got a favorable diagnosis of the intercostal strain on his right side, which required an injection.

Carson said the strain is very minor and he is being allowed to resume lightly tossing a baseball today. The strain originally was reported as being on the left side, but actually is on his glove side.

He tweaked the muscle with about seven or eight pitches to go while throwing batting practice. He finished the session and did post-workout running, but it tightened once he returned to the clubhouse.
