Looks like Double J is working his way back a little bit more quickly than perhaps anticipated.
Today he threw about 65 pitches off the mound and looked very good to both pitching coach Mark Wiley and manager Fredi Gonzalez.
The Marlins are willing to err on the side of caution, and are not urging their young starter to push himself too hard. They are keeping it to a very conservative approach for the young Marlin. Keep an eye on Josh Johnson but don’t expect too much even if he does get penciled in as a starter this season.
