Erik Davis (elbow) threw his first bullpen session Tuesday since undergoing Tommy John surgery.
He's now set to throw three bullpen sessions per week over the next four weeks. "It's great. It's a good feeling because it's been over a year since I've been on the mound," Davis said. "It's a major milestone for me, but I understand that the work is not done. I'm going to keep working hard on the field." Davis likely won't be game-ready until around midseason. He can aim for a September call-up. Feb 24 - 7:36 PM
