O'Conner down with hip soreness

Catcher Justin O'Conner, a first-round draft pick in 2010, has been out with hip soreness and is undergoing further tests, assistant farm director Chaim Bloom said.

O'Conner, who celebrates his 20th birthday today, had surgery a year ago on the other hip, but the Rays don't think it's related to his current problems.

O'Conner wasn't expected to make a full-season roster anyway. He hit .157 with Princeton last season.
