Via Chad Jennings, righty Ian Kennedy started a throwing program yesterday as part of his rehab from having an aneurysm removed from underneath his armpit. He made 25 throws from 40 feet and will throw every other day, gradually increasing the distance. The good news is that Kennedy said his arm feels terrific, but the bad news for him is that this is just the first of many steps. Once he works his way up to 60 feet, he’ll begin a more extensive program. There’s still no timetable for a return to the mound, but the process has begun.
