Guthrie making progress with shoulder
DENVER -- Rockies right-handed pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, out with a shoulder injury that he suffered while riding his bicycle to the park, hopes to throw off the mound "a couple times" between now and May 8 -- the day he is eligible to return from the disabled list.

Guthrie played catch at up to 200 feet on Tuesday.

"It gets better each day," Guthrie said. "The little bit of soreness continues to improve. I haven't talked to anybody that makes those decisions, but if it's [about] how I feel, I'll be pitching."

Guthrie (2-1, 5.92 ERA) understands that he will need to throw the bullpen sessions to be seriously considered for a May 8 return. But as of Wednesday morning, no such sessions had been scheduled.

The accident occurred when a part on his bike malfunctioned. The bike has been fixed, and Guthrie will continue to use a bike as his primary mode of transportation, as he has since age 5.
