Anthony Reyes (elbow) looked good in a batting practice session Friday and could pitch in a game by Tuesday.

"He looked good," said manager Manny Acta. "If everything goes OK, he'll throw a bullpen on Sunday and probably pitch in a game on Tuesday." Reyes said that he feels "all right" and "nothing is hurting," but he conceded he no longer has a shot for the No. 5 spot in the rotation due to the setback with his elbow. "I don't care where I start as long as I'm pitching," said Reyes. The 29-year-old has an opt-out clause in his contract that he can exercise if he's not in the majors by a certain date.

Anthony Reyes (elbow) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Friday in Indians camp.

Anthony Reyes (elbow) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.

Reyes had a bit of a scare with his throwing elbow a couple weeks back, a legitimate concern following Tommy John surgery. He's back on track now, though, and is expected to throw a simulated game Friday. It's unlikely he'll have enough time to threaten for a rotation spot to begin the year.

Anthony Reyes (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Sunday.

Reyes has played catch in recent days and evidently feels well enough to take it to the mound. It's still up in the air as to when he'll make his debut in a game. The right-hander entered camp in a competition for the No. 5 job in the rotation, but he's fallen behind.

Anthony Reyes (elbow) threw for the first time Friday since being shut down five days ago.

He played catch from 90 feet Friday and hopes to move back to 120 feet Saturday before progressing to throwing bullpen sessions next week. Reyes entered camp as part of the competition for the No. 5 starter job, but he's fallen behind due to elbow woes. A recent MRI on the elbow revealed no structural damage.

Anthony Reyes underwent an MRI on his surgically-repaired elbow which revealed no structural damage.

Good news. The Indians shut Reyes down due to discomfort in his elbow, but they are hopeful that he'll be able to get back on the mound this week. The 29-year-old right-hander opened spring training with a shot at the final spot in the starting rotation, but he's quickly falling behind his competition.

Anthony Reyes is currently dealing with discomfort is his surgically-repaired right elbow.

Reyes didn't pitch in either of the team's intrasquad games on Thursday and Friday and had a bullpen session scratched on Sunday. "He got checked out and everything," said Indians manager Manny Acta. "He's fine, but he's going to take a few days off. The ligament is perfect. There's no structural damage. He's just going to take a few days off and we'll go from there." The 29-year-old hasn't thrown a pitch in the majors since undergoing Tommy John surgery in June of 2009. He's competing against Josh Tomlin, Jeanmar Gomez, David Huff and Aaron Laffey for the final spot in the starting rotation, but this setback obviously won't help his chances.

Indians manager Manny Acta called Anthony Reyes (elbow) a "sleeper" for the final spot in the starting rotation.

Reyes hasn't thrown a pitch in the major leagues since undergoing Tommy John surgery in June of 2009, but Acta said he was hitting between 90-96 mph on the radar gun with his fastball and showing a strong breaking ball during the instructional league in October. The 29-year-old right-hander is set to compete with Aaron Laffey, David Huff, Josh Tomlin and Jeanmar Gomez for the fifth spot in the rotation.

Indians re-signed RHP Anthony Reyes to a minor league contract.

Reyes was dropped from the Tribe's 40-man roster in late October, but he's still a talent they have faith in and has shown flashes of potential when healthy. The 29-year-old was given a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, where he will try for a 2011 rotation spot.

Indians outrighted RHPs Anthony Reyes and Hector Ambriz and C Chris Gimenez to Triple-A Columbus.

The Indians wanted to clear some room on their 40-man roster, which is now down to 39 players. Reyes and Gimenez can elect free agency, but Ambriz, a former Rule 5 pick who will miss 2011 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, is still under team control.

Indians manager Manny Acta acknowledged Wednesday that Anthony Reyes (elbow) is unlikely to return to the majors this year.

Reyes was shut down from his minor league rehab assignment earlier this week after allowing 16 runs in 2 2/3 innings at the Double-A level. He's better off resting up and preparing for the opening of 2011.

Anthony Reyes is working through some flaws in his delivery that have stalled his rehab from elbow surgery.

Reyes has been pummeled for 16 runs in just 2 2/3 innings in his last two rehab starts, walking 10 batters over that time. ''He threw a bullpen yesterday,'' manager Manny Acta said. ''He's going to throw one more then pitch at (Low-A) Lake County, maybe next Monday. He's been going through some mechanical adjustments. This is nothing physical.'' Reyes still hopes to contribute to the major league club in September.

Anthony Reyes (elbow surgery) made it through Friday's bullpen session in good shape.

Reyes was recently pulled from his rehab assignment at Double-A Akron because of a back injury. He will resume the assignment Wednesday, and he and the Indians still hope he can pitch at some point this season for the big club.
