Bundy, Gonzalez, De La Cruz get in extra work

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles pitchers had the day off Friday, but three of them put in a little extra work as they continue to recover from various injuries.

Right-hander Dylan Bundy, working his way back from Tommy John surgery, played catch from 150 feet Friday morning with vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson. The Orioles hope to have the Majors' 20th-ranked prospect back by June, and manager Buck Showalter has been impressed with Bundy's progress thus far.

"It's going as well as you could hope for," Showalter said.

Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who's been dealing with back spasms, said he felt "100 percent good to go" after throwing a 35-pitch bullpen session Friday. Gonzalez has been dealing with the injury since Saturday but expects to begin throwing live batting practice Monday.

Left-hander Kelvin De La Cruz, held back at the start of camp with a left hamstring strain, also threw off the mound Friday morning.
