Phillies SP Chad Billingsley throws 32 pitches Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Phillies starting pitcher Chad Billingsley (elbow) threw 32 pitches in a minor-league outing Thursday, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. He allowed two hits over two scoreless innings, while issuing no walks and recording no strikeouts.

"Today was a really good test or step," Billingsley said, per MLB.com. "I had a really quick first inning. And then go back out there and throw 24 pitches. It felt great. So I was really pleased with it. As far as recovery, my arm feels good right now. If something was wrong, I would have come out of the game. It felt good, and I'm going to do it again in five days.

"I'm very encouraged each time I go out there. Each little step I take, I get more confidence. More confidence that my arm is responding well and it's recovering well. I let some balls go today, really getting after it. And each time out there just gaining confidence in my arm and trusting it and not really worrying about it. Getting it out of my mind. I mean, going through two surgeries the last two years, starting to trust it, and it's responded well, and I'm happy."
