Scott Proctor found the mound

As Dan reported in the comments, Scott Proctor finally made his way to the mound.

The Marlins reliever, who has been on the disabled list all season, threw a pain-free 20-pitch bullpen session at Wrigley Field in the morning, before each club took batting practice.

On the disabled list with right elbow inflammation, Proctor hasn't thrown in a game since the beginning of Spring Training. The Marlins are hopeful he can be a big addition to the bullpen eventually this season.

Proctor remains several weeks away from being game-ready, but Friday's mound session was a start.

Pitching coach Mark Wiley was encouraged, saying Proctor threw about five minutes. The right-hander tossed two-seam and four-seam fastballs.

 

Proctor still has bullpen sessions in his future and then after that pitching against live hitting.  Of course, bullpen pitchers get ready quicker than starters, but if we see him pitching for the Fish in late May, assuming they don't rush him, I will be impressed.
