Dotel to make debut Sunday

Jenifer Langosch/

Closer Octavio Dotel threw 24 pitches in a Minor League game on Thursday and again reported no issues with his left side. Dotel had been sidelined with an oblique injury earlier in camp. This was Dotel’s first game appearance of any kind this spring.

Dotel is now scheduled to pitch in the Pirates’ Grapefruit League game on Sunday against the Rays.The team hopes to get Dotel approximately eight innings of work before Spring Training ends.
