Orioles: Miguel Gonzalez to play catch on Monday

Back spasms forced pitcher Miguel Gonzalez into a day of rest on Sunday but the pitcher is scheduled to play catch on Monday.

Gonzalez, 29, suffered the spasms after fielding drills on Saturday. Should all go well for Gonzalez he will then throw a bullpen session in two days.

The Orioles will be counting on Gonzalez when the season begins. In 2013 he made 30 appearances, 28 starts, and finished with a 3.78 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and a 120/53 K/BB ratio over 171 1/3 innings of work.
