by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager provides positive update on Arodys Vizcaino


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2014) Cubs pitcher Arodys Vizcaino, who has missed the last two seasons recovering from Tommy John surgery, threw his first side session of spring training Saturday, according to MLB.com.

"The ball came out of his hand pretty easy," manager Rick Renteria said of Vizcaino. "He stayed down in the zone pretty consistently in his 'pen today. He looked comfortable, very fit. I think he looked as good as we would want him to look at this point."

The Cubs aren't putting a timetable on the right-hander's return, but when Vizcaino is ready, it appears he's headed for a bullpen role.

"Obviously, it's been a long road back," Renteria said. "He's got some skill. The ball really comes out of his hand easily. His breaking pitches have some bite to them. Even as you're watching him work his bullpens, he has some presence on the mound. His demeanor is very professional."
