Waldrop plays catch for first time since injury
MINNEAPOLIS -- Right-hander Kyle Waldrop, on the disabled list retroactive to March 26 with a strained right elbow, played catch for the first time on Monday.

Waldrop threw from 60 feet, and he said he hopes to amp it up more and throw from 90 feet later this week.

There's still no official timetable for his return, but Waldrop said that playing catch was a good first step and everything felt fine.

Waldrop was expected to make the club out of Spring Training, as he posted a 1.50 ERA in six Grapefruit League outings before feeling discomfort in his elbow late in spring.
