Chicago Cubs reliever Angel Guzman – and candidate for 8th inning duties – managed to throw today at Cubs camp, and reportedly felt good. He threw about 25 to 30 pitches from 45 feet, so he’s still got a bit of a way to go, but the good news is that he felt good and will throw again tomorrow.

Guzman was one of the Cubs’ best relievers last year, so his surprise offseason knee surgery and recent shoulder issues have been a bit scary.
