Reynolds briefly sidelined with sore right oblique

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- After missing the entire 2014 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, D-backs left-hander Matt Reynolds was looking forward to a smooth Spring Training.

Yet on the day he was supposed to throw his session of batting practice, he found himself back in the trainer's room, this time with a sore right oblique muscle.

"I'm like, 'I'm in here again, I can't get out of this darn room,'" Reynolds said.

The good news, though, is he's had no issues with his elbow and should be back on the mound again soon.

"My elbow feels real good," he said. "It feels strong."
