Breslow to start throwing program on Saturday


FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Lefty reliever Craig Breslow, slowed this spring by weakness in his shoulder, will begin a throwing program on Saturday.

The program will start with work on flat ground and progress from there.

Is there still time for Breslow to build up in time to be on the Opening Day roster?

"As of today, yes," said manager John Farrell. "If we get further into camp, we'll have to adjust accordingly. Most importantly is that we respond to how he feels and not be totally attached to the date."
