Lindstrom close to throwing
It looks like it will be exactly seven days when Matt Lindstrom resumes throwing.
Dealing with a right rotator cuff strain, Lindstrom said on Friday that he is scheduled to throw off flat ground on Sunday.
The Marlins closer felt some tightness in his shoulder while pitching for Team USA last Sunday against the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic. An MRI revealed the strain, and he was shut down from throwing for seven to 10 days.
Lindstrom estimates he will throw at 90 feet.
There still is no time frame for when he will return to game action. And it is doubtful he will be ready for Opening Day.
However, Lindstrom is encouraged with how he feels, and he doesn’t consider the injury serious.
