Jeremy Hefner made his third rehab start coming back from Tommy John surgery on Tuesday.
Hefner allowed one run on two hits in three innings in the Gulf Coast League. He did not walk a batter and struck out one.
Hefner said recently that he may be able to pitch in the major league game in 2014 (ESPN, June 22).
“If there’s a need here, and they want me here, I can foresee that,” Hefner said.
Hefner underwent Tommy John surgery on August 28, 2013, six weeks before Matt Harvey had the same surgery.
