Pirates' A.J. Schugel: Begins throwing program
Schugel, who hadn't thrown since injuring his right shoulder in a Grapefruit League game Feb. 25, resumed playing catch Wednesday, Lance Lysowski of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Schugel is out of minor-league options and isn't expected to start the season in Pittsburgh's bullpen, leaving the organization with the decision to place him on the disabled list or risk losing him to another team. The serviceable righty has appeared in 68 games over the last two years for the Pirates, compiling a 3.00 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 84 innings.
