Guardado throws

SAN DIEGO - Eddie Guardado just finished throwing a 20-pitch live batting practice session. The lefty reliever, who is coming back from "Tommy John" elbow surgery, faced Josh Hamilton, Jeff Keppinger and Norris Hopper.

It was clear, even from our press box perch, that he was having fun.

We'll catch up with Eddie when the clubhouse opens to the media here in a few minutes.

Hamilton, Hopper, Keppinger and Juan Castro, who got his 500th career hit Sunday, are now extra batting practice.

how soon do you think guardado will be back closing for the reds?

Umm .., It's 7-0 and we haven't heard from you in a while, so I'll just say it.

If the pitcher has a 7-0 lead in the 5th -- and no, I don't care if he's a future HOFer -- and he squares to bunt, how does he not end up with either dirt on his pants or a baseball between the D and the R?

Is this T-ball or what?

Jerry Narron indicated a few days ago that there's a chance Guardado could go on a rehab assignment when the Reds leave for their next road trip (May 29-June7).

He's been throwing roughly 40 pitches each time out - 20 in the bullpen and then 20 during the live batting practice sessions.
