Coffey throws simulated game, nears return
LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers reliever Todd Coffey, placed on the disabled list April 14 with a well-timed right knee inflammation, threw a simulated game Monday.

Coffey said the inflammation was the result of Spring Training running. Coincidentally, Coffey is known for his trademark sprint from the bullpen to the mound when he enters games.

Coffey said he expects to pitch in Minor League rehab games Wednesday and Friday, then be activated on Sunday, when the Dodgers will face the same roster dilemma they had on April 14, when they put Coffey on the disabled list to make room for the activation of Ted Lilly.
