Via Chad Jennings: Michael Pineda is scheduled to throw live batting practice in two weeks, the first time he will face hitters since having shoulder surgery last May. The right-hander will throw a 45-pitch bullpen session tomorrow and said he has not had any discomfort so far. This is obviously a pretty huge step for the 24-year-old, who still has a long way to go before getting into any kind of game action or actually contributing to the big league team. Still, pretty awesome news.
