Via Chad Jennings: Right-hander Michael Pineda threw 25 pitches — all fastballs — as part of his latest bullpen session this morning. His surgically repaired right shoulder is doing well, so much so that he will stretch out to 30 pitches and begin to incorporate changeups next time out. Right now he’s only thrown changeups off flat ground, and I assume breaking balls are still a long ways off. It’s not much, but every small step forward is a big positive for Pineda given the severity of his injury.
