Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale was a little bit more cautious about Reed's shoulder status than Reed was Sunday, the Arizona Republic reports. "The worst thing we can do is say you've only thrown two or three times now and we're going to open the season," Hale said. "If that's the case, then he may have to start on the DL. We're a long way away from that. We'll see how many outings it's going to take for him to feel comfortable and for us to feel comfortable with how he's throwing the ball."
Owings was expected to miss the first 7-10 days of games due to a shoulder injury, but is progressing more quickly than expected, the Arizona Republic reports. "I don't have an exact (return) date," manager Chip Hale said, "but he's past where I thought he was."
Reed said the soreness in his shoulder has completely subsided, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. He will be able to throw off a mound in about two weeks and is still expected to be ready for Opening Day.
