Derrek Lee had a specialist look at his injured right wrist earlier this week and the Orioles announced yesterday that an MRI exam “came back normal.”

According to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun “team officials continue to believe that the veteran is just experiencing some tendonitis that resulted from the inactivity following thumb surgery.”

However, there’s still no timetable for Lee to make his spring training debut after signing a one-year, $7.25 million deal this offseason.

The White Sox announced yesterday that pitcher Danny Farquhar, who suffered a brain aneurysm on Friday night, is “progressing well” after undergoing brain surgery.

The White Sox say that Farquhar has use of his extremities, is able to respond to questions and commands and can speak to doctors and to his family. He remains in critical but “neurologically stable” condition, according to the statement.

As reported earlier, he’ll likely remain in the hospital for three weeks. There has been no discussion about his future in baseball, but Bob Nightengale reported yesterday that, according to neurologists with whom he spoke, the recovery from the sort of aneurysm which felled Farquhar is measured in “months, not weeks,” and it’s possible that he never pitches again.
