ST. PETERSBURG, Fla, (AP) -Orioles closer Chris Ray worked out with the team before Friday night's game against Tampa Bay.
Ray, coming back from right elbow surgery, has been rehabbing at the Orioles' minor league complex in Sarasota, Fla. The right-hander had a long toss session, but has not thrown off a mound yet.
``Ray is still on his throwing progression program,'' Baltimore manager Dave Trembley said. ``It's tough for him right now because he feels like he's way ahead in his program. He feels like he could pitch right now, but obviously that's not going to happen. He's a couple months away from getting up on a mound.''
Ray hopes to return before the regular season ends.
Also, utility man Freddie Bynum, who had right knee surgery, is scheduled to start playing in extended spring training games Monday.
Right-hander Fernandez Cabrera (elbow surgery) had a bullpen session and is set to throw a couple of batting practice sessions before getting into a minor league game.
