Vic Black (herniated disk in neck) threw off a mound Thursday.
He made 15 pitches, which he said felt “funky fresh,” before a full mound session on Saturday.
Black is eligible to return from the DL Monday and he said he will be ready to return by then (Twitter, Sept. 4).
Matt Harvey was also scheduled to throw an ‘up/down’ bullpen Thursday, pitching coach Dan Warthen told reporters on Wednesday (Ehalt, Sept. 3). Harvey will throw, rest eight minutes, then throw again.
