            Tim Mayza and Lou Trivino, a pair of big league relief pitchers, each returned to Pennsylvania around St. Patrick's Day after getting locked out of their team's facilities.

reconstructive elbow surgery to his basement in Lancaster.

            Trivino plans on scouring the Quakertown area to find players to work out with. "I'll throw to anyone interested in taking live batting practice," he said.

            The decision by Major League Baseball to suspend Spring Training earlier this month due to concerns over COVID-19 canceled games in Florida and Arizona. Mayza, a left-handed relief pitcher with Toronto, was hoping to continue his recovery at the team's facility in Dunedin, Fla. He said there was a slight chance injured players might be allowed to stay.

            Instead, Mayza continues his recovery from a procedure to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament and repair a completely torn flexor tendon in his own house.

            "I'm getting a little bored," said Stoudt, a 2016 graduate of Perkiomen School. "Being sent home was kind of disappointing. It's definitely a weird situation."

            The decision to postpone the start of major and minor league seasons and shutter each of the complexes in Florida and Arizona delayed Stoudt's recovery from ligament replacement surgery. Eight months following the procedure, he was approximately one month away from throwing from a mound.

            "This is a pretty important time for my recovery," said Stoudt, selected in the third round of the 2019 MLB First-Year Players Draft out of Lehigh University.

            In the final days of camp, the 22-year-old advanced to playing catch at a maximum distance of 105 feet. Stoudt said he was throwing three sets of 25 at that distance at 85 percent effort.  At home in Marlborough Township, he has ...
