-- Scott Olsen (sore left hamstring) is scheduled to throw today, and will be evaluated after another bullpen session on Monday; he also threw Thursday. Evan Meek (tight right calf) is still long tossing; no timetable for his return. Both injuries are considered minor and being treated cautiously by the staff, as all February tweaks should be handled.
