Craig Kimbrel Threw a Bullpen Session Today, So That’s Something At Least

Chicago Cubs

Craig Kimbrel (elbow inflammation) isn’t coming off the IL today, and may not be an impact piece down the stretch – who can say for sure at this point? – but at least he took a step today.

Kimbrel will need to feel good after this session, and then be able to really uncork a serious session (or another one, if today’s was), and then recover from that fine before he could be considered for game action. You’re still looking at next week at the earliest, but today’s session means that *maybe* you could hope for early next week as opposed to late.

Or, of course, it’s possible he won’t feel good tomorrow and the whole thing starts over again.
