Wandy Rodriguez is now making steady progress.

According to beat writer Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the left-hander threw fastballs and changeups in a successful 25-pitch bullpen session Saturday at Colorado’s Coors Field. ”No problems” Rodriguez told reporters after the short workout.

Rodriguez will throw another bullpen session — his third — on Wednesday in St. Louis and could then be cleared to face live hitters. ”It won’t be finalized until we know how he feels tomorrow from throwing today that’s what we kind of laid out as the plan moving forward” manager Clint Hurdle said.
