CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Closer Brad Lidge seemed to be in good spirits at Bright House Field on Tuesday morning.
If he is worried, he is not showing it.
Lidge is unable to pitch because of tendinitis in his right biceps, which explains why his velocity has been down this spring. He said Tuesday that he plans to play catch over the next couple of days before throwing a bullpen session Thursday.

"Honestly, it's really not that big a thing, assuming everything goes the way it's supposed to go," Lidge said. "If it doesn't, then obviously it would be cause for concern. But right now, we're good. I have plenty of time to be ready for April 1."
