Padres relief pitcher Shawn Kelley (forearm) threw a 20-pitch simulated game Friday and expects to be ready to return Tuesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Interim manager Pat Murphy said afterward that Kelley's "fastball command is not quite there, but he's healthy." A forearm strain has sidelined Kelley since Sept. 1, but if he makes it through one more bullpen session Sunday, he should be available for the Giants series next week.
The Padres received some encouraging news Wednesday when reliever Shawn Kelley was diagnosed only with a nerve issue down the side of his forearm. "It's not the elbow, which is good," assistant general manager Josh Stein told U-T San Diego. Kelley left the game Tuesday night with the injury. It remains to be seen when he can return to the mound.
