Pirates relief pitcher Rob Scahill threw a light bullpen session on Thursday, as he continues to work his way froma forearm injury, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Scahill also threw some pitches from flat groung earlier this week in Kansas City. "It's all loosened up, so it's all good," Scahill said.

"That way it's a little bit easier to get my throwing and stuff in," Scahill said. "If they want me to throw a [simulated] game or something, then none of these guys have to stand in. It can just be against some minor leaguers. Do that maybe once or twice and then hopefully out on rehab after that."
