Carl Pavano Injury: Twins Pitcher Throws Pain-Free 1st Bullpen Session

Hopeful to get back on the field with his teammates soon, Minnesota Twins pitcher Carl Pavano took the mound for a bullpen session on Sunday to continue rehab on his injured shoulder. Twins general manager Terry Ryan told MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger that the veteran pitcher's first session went fine with no reported problems:

While there remains a very viable concern that Pavano's time on the disabled list will not have helped his shoulder situation, it's at least comforting that he did not report any soreness whatsoever considering how setbacks have become a norm for the veteran right-hander as of late. Saturday, August 4 will mark the two month point from when Pavano was originally placed on the disabled list, even though it remains unclear just how much longer he'll be out.
