Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Set to throw to hitters Thursday
Blackburn (forearm) will throw to minor-league hitters sometime Thursday according to manager Bob Melvin, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Blackburn was originally set to throw a batting practice session next Monday, but the timetable for him to face hitters appears to have been bumped up. The 24-year-old right-hander has been sidelined since late in spring training, and he's apparently been making steady progress since beginning a throwing program in mid-April.
