Though Joe Cruz close, Salem still out

While pitcher Joe Cruz is hopeful of returning soon, outfielder Emeel Salem, one of Montgomery's top offensive threats last year, remains out with a knee injury and doubts he'll play this year.

Salem said he and doctors still aren't sure what specifically is wrong with the knee, but it has kept him at Tampa Bay's rehab camp since spring training.

“I just need to rest it," Salem said. "We're going to focus on next season, I think, and make sure I'm 100 percent for spring training.”
