Kim Kwang-hyun of the St. Louis Cardinals is expected to make a timely recovery for the new season, which starts early next month.
Kim had to suspend training after feeling tightness in his back on March 14, but a few days later, he showed up for a couple of throwing sessions in the bullpen last week.
Cardinals manager Mike Shildt remains positive about his recovery.
"I think there's still some optimism, but we also recognize that we don't want to force anything," he said. "We're just going to put him on the schedule that best gets him back to being healthy, and if that lines up, great. If it doesn't, then we'll adjust."
