Nathan throws bullpen session without any pain

Twins closer Joe Nathan threw a bullpen session on Tuesday and reported afterward that his right shoulder felt great.

Nathan had been expected to pitch for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic but pulled out of the event on Sunday due to soreness in the AC joint – where the clavicle meets the acromion process of the scapula at the top of the shoulder.

The plan now is to have Nathan throw to live batting practice on Thursday and to possibly pitch in the Twins’ Grapefruit League contest against the Pirates on Saturday.
