Behind the mask

Starting catcher Gregg Zaun got shelved on Saturday with a sore throwing elbow but said that it’s just a minor problem that won’t affect him in the long haul.

Zaun, who played back-to-back games lately, said that his elbow began to bother him after conducting extra throwing drills recently. Manager Dave Trembley elected to sit him down instead of risking further injury, giving the start to top prospect Matt Wieters instead. Wieters, who is scheduled to leave the team on Sunday, singled and scored in Zaun’s absence.
