Athletics SP A.J. Griffin has thrown three bullpen sessions
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Ten months removed from Tommy John surgery, Athletics right-hander A.J. Griffin has thrown three bullpen sessions prior to start of spring training, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Each of these sessions have only featured his fastball, though he will likely mix in his changeup in next week. Griffin threw off of a mound for the first time in four months last week.

The Athletics aren't expecting Griffin to return to game action until June.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Athletics starting pitcher A.J. Griffin, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, said he will throw off a mound Tuesday for the first time in four months, per InsideBayArea.com.

On Sunday, manager Bob Melvin and assistant general manager David Forst reiterated they aren't expecting Griffin back until June, per MLB.com.

"I don't think I'll be pitching in any games in spring training, but I'm just excited to get back out there with the guys and be a ballplayer again," Griffin said.

A's pitcher A.J. Griffin not expecting to pitch in spring training
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher A.J. Griffin is still rehabbing his arm from Tommy John surgery and is feeling good about his progress. If it was up to him, Griffin would be back on the mound already.

"I don't think I'll be pitching in any games in spring training, but I'm just excited to get back out there with the guys and be a ballplayer again," Griffin said.

Griffin missed the entire 2014 season after suffering the elbow injury. He went 14-10 in 2013 with a 3.83 ERA and 171 strikeouts in 200 innings pitched.

"If you have to go through this," said Griffin, "it's good to have someone right there with you who's going through the same thing. It's been good to have him with me during the process."
