CLEARWATER, Fla. - Relievers J.C. Romero and Clay Condrey both threw successful 35-pitch bullpen sessions at the Phillies' Bright House Field yesterday morning.
Romero, sidelined with a strained left forearm, said he is looking to rejoin the Phillies before the season ends.
Of his session, Romero said: "I'm OK with it. I am a work in progress."
Suspended for the first 50 games this season after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, Romero made a rehab appearence for Class A Clearwater against Dunedin on Aug. 7 that lasted only 10 pitches. He returned to Philadelphia and was re-examined.
