Day 11: Intrasquad roundup
Postgame tidbits: Dallas Braden, who was greeted by leadoff hitter Coco Crisp donning an A-Rod patch on the back of his uniform, looked to be in midseason form, Geren said. Braden threw 20 pitches and allowed just one hit. … Catcher Max Stassi homered off Guillermo Moscoso, while fellow catcher Josh Donaldson didn’t fare so well in the game, taking a foul ball to his knee. Geren didn’t know the extent of the injury but said it’s likely a deep bruise. … Prospect Sean Doolittle, who has been sidelined by a left knee injury the past two years, collected his first hit of the spring, a clean single off Jerry Blevins. … Also of note, Geren said after the game that he expects Rich Harden to begin throwing again Sunday or Monday.
