Chad Billingsley threw a simulated game yesterday, looks OK
Chad Billingsley pitched to hitters for two pain-free innings Monday, a sign that he may be able to avoid reconstructive elbow surgery this off-season.
“It looks like he’s going to be ready for the 2013 season,” said Dave Stewart, Billingsley’s agent.
He threw around 40 pitches and touched 94 on the gun. Good signs, even if it’s hard to remember many guys with such injuries who didn’t, eventually, have to go under the knife.
