I’ll try to avoid the usual durability jokes and simply pass this news along, because Rich Harden has certainly had it rough enough.
The oft-injured right-hander has resumed throwing off a mound following two months on the sidelines with lat muscle soreness, but manager Bob Geren cautioned to Jane Lee of MLB.com that there’s no timetable for Harden to appear in a simulated game, let alone for him to actually come off the disabled list.
Harden, who has yet to pitch for the A’s after signing an incentive-laden one-year deal as a free agent, threw off a mound Sunday and yesterday, with Geren describing him as “free and easy.”
Normally this is where I’d make some snide comment but I’ll hold off, at least until Harden’s next setback.
