Injured Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Rich Harden tossed 33 pitches in a bullpen session yesterday, and all appears to be going well for him.
”It went really well,” said Harden, who added the midback pain is gone. ”I’m good.”
Harden, who last pitched May 17, is to throw a longer pen on Thursday and then either throw a simulated game or a make a minor-league rehab start a few days after that.
Barring a setback, that could put him on pace for a return to the rotation when the team returns home for a three-game series June 12-14 against Minnesota. CHICAGO SUN-TIMES.
It’s not quite panic time in Wrigleyville, but it would be nice to have a full, healthy team together at some point.
