"He's feeling better but he's still sore," Black said. "Deeno and the doctors just think that this is a bump in the road.
Something might have got a little angry with the shoulder. But he feels confident that he's going to be fine."
Denorfia said everything is just precautionary at this point.
"I'm just taking it easy for a couple of days. I'm going to see the doctor tomorrow," Denorfia said. "But I'm not overly worried. I didn't want to push it yesterday."
Denorfia said he was encouraged that the soreness wasn't brought on by a specific incident, but seemed to be more cumulative.
"It was sort of a build-up," he said.
Denorfia is hitting .207 this spring in 29 at-bats with two steals and two RBIs.
