NEW YORK – Braves reliever Peter Moylan threw his fifth bullpen this week Sunday, working up to 60 pitches at 50 percent, as he continues to build up arm strength in his return from back surgery.
The Braves hope to get Moylan back by late August or early September, and so far so good.
Moylan said his back has not been an issue.
“I’m pumped,” he said. “I want to take the next step already. The way I’m throwing right now, I feel like I could get someone out. Obviously there’s a process we have to run through because it’s not like I just have my left finger operated on, it’s my back. It’s a process, but the end is near.”
