by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Orioles' Paul Janish progressing toward playing in games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Orioles infielder Paul Janish has thrown the last three days and took batting practice on the field Thursday for the first time since undergoing elbow surgery in February.

"That was good," Janish said, per MASNsports.com. "At this point, the throwing has gone really well. I don't have a really good estimate in terms of how long the throwing program is going to take, but I don't think it's going to be too long, so it looks like I'll play for the last couple weeks of camp, hopefully."

Janish is still hoping to make his spring debut March 20 or March 21.

"It's optimistic," he said. "That would be next Friday. It's a feasible option, but like I said, it's optimistic. But probably, assuming everything goes well over the next week, sometime in that timeframe or next weekend being in the mix to hopefully play in games.

"That's not entirely my decision, so I'll be at the disposal of the trainers, but health-wise I'm feeling good and I think we're going to be in the clear in terms of having the opportunity to play while we're down here, which ultimately was my goal."

Orioles' Janish still aiming to make spring debut March 20-21


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Orioles shortstop Paul Janish fielded grounders for 20-25 minutes Tuesday and still intends to throw for the first time this weekend since undergoing elbow surgery in February, per MASNsports.com.

Janish is still aiming to play in a spring game either March 20 or March 21.

"It went really well," Janish said. "I was moving around and relubricating everything, so to speak. It's not just the ground balls, it's the legs and getting everything going, getting the body moving in those ways again. It went as well as it could, to be honest.

"Now it's getting on a consistent schedule of doing that stuff so I can get back into baseball shape and hopefully this weekend I'll have the opportunity to start throwing.

"As far as hitting, that's not as big of a deal. I can actually swing right now, hit off a tee and stuff. But in terms of getting in BP groups and start hitting live, that's probably going to be accordance with throwing, so I'd imagine this weekend."


Orioles' Janish not likely to make spring debut until late March


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Orioles infielder Paul Janish, who underwent surgery in February to remove bone chips from his right elbow, will field grounders Tuesday for the first time since surgery and throw this weekend, per MASNsports.com.

Janish is aming to play in his first spring game either March 20 or March 21.

"Relatively speaking, it feels about as well as it can up to this point. Probably a little bit ahead of schedule, which is a difficult thing to kind of expedite on the training room side of it," Janish said. "I'm getting a little restless, but they are allowing me to start taking ground balls tomorrow. I don't start throwing until probably this weekend, so from then on it will be 10 days to two weeks of a throwing program, which will be abbreviated for me, not being a pitcher or anything of that nature. It's a completely different kind of program.

"Fortunately, I haven't had any problems at all. Everything up to this point has been really smooth, not having any residual soreness or pain or anything of that nature. It's all individual. Some people just don't react the same. Fortunately for me, it's been good up to this point, so hopefully we continue going down the right path."
