KANSAS CITY -- Jesse Crain felt good during a 30-pitch bullpen session on Sunday, although he got a little fatigued at the end, which is expected since the right-hander hadn't thrown for a while.
Next up for Crain, who has been on the disabled list since July 4 with a right shoulder strain, is either another bullpen session or throwing to some hitters on Tuesday or Wednesday. By Friday, Crain hopes to throw in a Minor League rehab contest and then return for the Minnesota series in Chicago beginning July 23.
"From what I felt today, it's one of those things where it's getting better," Crain said. "Now it's just building the strength up again to handle pitching in a game."
