Jose Contreras: Back On The Mound

It’s been a long time, but on Tuesday Jose Contreras threw an early morning bullpen session, and reports are that it went nicely.  It was the first time that the Big Truck threw off the mound since he had elbow surgery at the end of last season.

I’m not sure what Jose has left in the tank, but Contreras (age 40) was productive last year before going down for the season, and it will be interesting what he’s able to do.  Jose pitched in just 14 innings last season but he was 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA.  One thing is for sure, there sure are a few characters in the bullpen this year, and it will be interesting to see how it all shakes out.

I”ll have more to add later today after Rich Dubee opens up to the media, so stop back.

Keep up with me on Facebook, and Twitter.
