Lance McCullers (elbow) is scheduled to throw live batting practice on Saturday.
McCullers missed all of 2019 after undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, but he should be fully recovered by now. “I’m in a very good place, mentally and physically,” McCullers said after arriving at summer camp in Houston on Friday. “I feel excellent. I felt great in spring training, but the extra time off and being able to ramp it up and pull it back down, I feel it’s made me a little bit stronger. I’m excited.” The 26-year-old posted a strong 3.67 ERA and 10.1 K/9 through his first 453 2/3 major league innings between 2015-2018. Jul 03 5:05 pm (EST)
