PHOENIX: A’s lefty Dallas Braden is showing no signs of slowing his rehab after making a 35 pitch bullpen session– his second since undergoing Tommy John surgery– look effortless on Friday.
“Again, with Brett, his arm looked real good,” manager Bob Melvin said. “He’s got the kinks worked out as far as soreness goes, and you really wouldn’t think he had an arm injury the way he’s throwing the ball.”
Fellow southpaw Dallas Braden, on the road back from shoulder surgery, proved just as impressive during his sixth bullpen session.
“They look like regular pitchers out there, not rehabbing guys,” Melvin said.
The duo will continue on the same schedule, which includes two bullpen sessions per week according to Oakland Athleltics.com’s Jan Lee.
