Minor League Injury Updates: Chambers, Pribanic, Fuesser, Hornback
Here are some injury updates from minor league camp.
**Evan Chambers broke his foot and will be out for eight weeks. The 2009 third round pick had successful surgery last week, and had his cast removed this week. He has been walking on crutches with a boot the last few days.
**Aaron Pribanic had labrum surgery in the off-season, after throwing once in Australia. The right-hander, who was acquired in the Jack Wilson/Ian Snell trade in 2009, had shoulder problems last year. He finally discovered that he had a partial tear of the labrum over the off-season. He should return to the mound for rehab work around July.
**Zac Fuesser threw his first bullpen of the year yesterday. He’s behind all of the other pitchers, mostly because he threw too many innings last year. The Pirates wanted to give him a break from the increased workload. Fuesser will throw a few more bullpens before starting on live batting practice and games.
**Ryan Hornback had a left groin injury last year, and is still recovering from the injury.
