Montgomery (lat) threw 26 pitches in a bullpen session Thursday and will throw at least one more before the Cubs set a return date for him, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Montgomery has been on the injured list since Saturday, but his absence isn't expected to be particularly lengthy. He's eligible to return Monday but appears to need a little more time than that, with the Cubs' homestand beginning on April 19 a more realistic target.
