Teaford hoping to see game action in one week


SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Left-hander Everett Teaford, who's supposed to be competing for a roster spot, was delayed by a sore shoulder but hopes to finally pitch in a game by Friday. He'll probably throw a batting-practice session on Tuesday, and he's eager to catch up.

"Especially since everybody is pitching so well," Teaford said. "I might be behind the 8-ball or I might be behind the 7-ball."

Infielder Elliot Johnson, out with a bruised shin after playing in five games, is expected to return Tuesday after Monday's open date.
