It doesn't sound like the return of Ross Ohlendorf, who threw BP yesterday, is imminent.
The problem is a lack of endurance and arm strength. Ohlendorf's first set of pitches went fine, but pitching coach Ray Searage noticed Ohlendorf faded in the second set. "We're not there yet," Searage said. "The delivery is good; I like what I see there. I see consistency of arm slot and the head staying on target. But his strength is not consistent. That's normal." Ohlendorf will throw a bullpen session Sunday, then be re-evaluated.
On April 18, we heard that it would probably be another month before Ohlendorf would return, but now it looks more like early June. It sounds like it will be a while before Ohlendorf can go on a rehab stint.
