Kuo set to face hitters in BP on Saturday
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Reliever Hong-Chih Kuo, injury free this spring but on a conservative throwing program to keep him that way, is scheduled to throw live batting practice for the first time Saturday.

Kuo said if that goes well, he would have a bullpen session on Monday and could pitch in an exhibition game as early as Wednesday.

Kuo was limited to two innings of exhibition games last spring because of his balky left elbow and started the season on the disabled list, but he ended it as the closer with a franchise-record 1.20 ERA.
