Paul Bush made his first start since having elbow surgery. Bush tossed two innings allowing a run and four hits. He struck out two and walked one.
"He felt good the whole time," Danny Borrell, the rehab pitching coordinator, said. "As long as you come out feeling no pain, it was a successful day."
Bush looked effective on the mound, hitting his spots and working through all of his pitches. Borrell was pleased with his performance and thinks he is in the right spot of his rehab assignment.
"He got his scheduled two innings," Borrell said. "Got his pitches in and we got him outta there. He is good to go."
Manny Banuelos is still a long way from returning according to Borrell.
"He is still recovering inside," Borrell said. "He hasn't resumed throwing."
Although he is still a long ways from returning to the mound, it seems like Banuelos is moving along well inside the training room.
Dellin Betances, much like Bush, is coming off of elbow surgery and is moving along as well. His arm feels strong and he is throwing bullpen sessions at the complex.
"He has been throwing for a while and his arm has been feeling well," Borrell said. "He is bouncing back well."
Bettances is working a lot on repeating his delivery as he makes his comeback from the surgery and looks to be right about where he should be at this point in his recovery.
"He feels strong," Borrell said. "He is repeating his delivery nicely."
As for a return date, however, there is still no timeline for his recovery.
"Time-wise I don't know how much longer," Borrell admitted. "But he's making his starts when he's supposed to and he's healthy."
Brett Marshall is virtually the same story as Betances. He is coming off of elbow surgery and is working bullpen sessions.
"He is still a bit away from being on the mound, game-wise," Borrell said. "But he's throwing bullpens and he's feeling strong as well."
With Marshall's strong work ethic, Borrell expects him to make a full recovery.
"He is a hard worker and a good kid, I'm sure he'll be fine," Borrell said.
Andrew Shive is also dealing with an elbow injury and has no timeline set for his return to the mound. He is working on a throwing schedule identical to that of Marshall.
"Couple more weeks, a month," Borrell said. "I don't know time-wise with him either."
Bryan Mitchell has resumed his throwing program and is feeling good as he moves forward with his recovery.
"He's feeling pretty strong right now," Borrell said. "The key for him is being able to throw every day; make sure there is no pain."
Mitchell seems to be where he should be with his throwing regimen and Borrell feels he'll have a full, strong, recovery process.
Caleb Cotham, coming off knee surgery, is sitting in about the same boat as Mitchell in terms of his recovery program.
"He's doing well," Borrell said. "He feels good coming off his surgery."
Juan Marcano is also on a throwing program and things seem to be moving along at a normal rate for him as well. He has been throwing bullpen and flat ground sessions and looks to get back on the mound as soon as he is ready.
"We want to make sure they're all 100% before we get them back out on the mound," Borrell said in regards to all of the recovering players. "All these guys are feeling strong and it makes my job easier. These guys are working hard and they're all good kids."
