Astros' Lance McCullers: Tosses light bullpen Tuesday

McCullers threw from the slope of the mound Tuesday and may throw a regular bullpen session this weekend in Boston, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

This represents a significant step forward for the right-hander as manager A.J. Hinch previously said that McCullers wouldn't throw off a mound "any time soon" when asked about his status during the final week of August. The right-hander's timetable remains murky, but more should be known following this weekend.
