"I threw the ball funky. It's not a big deal," Werth said. "Davey is just being cautious. I'm OK. It's Spring Training. These things come up every year. It's just one of those things. … Davey is really cautious. I played for guys who are not very cautious and they don't care if you have something going on. They want you out there.
"It's early in the spring. … It's fine, but at the same time, I want to be in there. I want to play, I want my at-bats. You have to be careful. You don't want to injure it more."
