|(8/11/14) Astros reliever Matt Albers will throw a bullpen on Tuesday, according to the Houston Chronicle. Albers has been sidelined since April 22 due to right shoulder tendinitis and remains hopeful of playing again this season.|
"I'm feeling good," Albers said. "I'm feeling a lot better. I threw a 20-pitch bullpen on Friday, and it went pretty well. I'll throw another one tomorrow and increase intensity. I'm feeling pretty good, and hopefully I'll be on the way back this year."
Matt Albers begins mound work
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/5/14) Astros reliever Matt Albers tossed 15 fastballs during a bullpen session Saturday, as he continues to work his way back from a right shoulder injury.
Albers, who has been out since April 22 due to tendinitis, reported no setbacks in talking to the Houston Chronicle about the session Monday. He has been beset by setbacks during his recovery from this particular injury.
"The last couple times, I've kind of got off the mound, I kind of had a setback, so I feel like I've progressed where I can get off a mound," he said. "It's been a little bit. It felt good, came out good. (Sunday brought) no issues. I feel pretty normal."
Albers has no timetable for a possible return, but hopes to be back by the end of August, in a best-case scenario.
"My main goal is just to be able to get back healthy," Albers said. "I think if I can come back - even if it's a month, a little over a month of pitching - if I'm back to where I am, that's really important to go into the offseason knowing I'm over this injury and I can get back and have a normal offseason."
