O'Malley leaving for extended spring rehab

Biscuits shortstop Shawn O'Malley leaves Tuesday for extended spring training to take his final steps in rehabbing an ailing right shoulder.

O'Malley is up to throwing from 90 feet and has been taking regular batting practice. The extended spring appearance is to get his timing back, though the length of his stay isn't known.

"Hopefully," he said, "it will be a short one."
