SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez did not participate in the team's charity golf tournament, but he did play catch Monday as the right-hander cautiously progresses back toward the mound.

"It all depends on how it really feels," said Gonzalez, who left Saturday's workout early with back spasms while covering the first-base bag. "There's no rush."

Gonzalez was hopeful he'd be back on the mound in the next couple of days and isn't worried about being behind.

"It's just a spasm is all, nothing to worry about," he said. "I have about five [bullpen sessions already]. So, pretty good. I've been throwing all my pitches, so I'm not worried about skipping a day or two."
