Matt Garza took a big step in his recovery from the elbow injury that ended his season, throwing a bullpen session yesterday for the first time since July.

“Matty looks like he is in great shape,” pitching coach Chris Bosio said, via Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago. “It looks like he worked hard in the offseason. His legs are in great shape and I believe he is ahead of where he was last year when he reported.”

Levine reports that Garza threw 30 pitches in front of Bosio and general manager Jed Hoyer, and barring a late setback it sounds like he’ll be fully healthy for spring training after avoiding arbitration with a one-year, $10.25 million deal.
