Guthrie throws bullpen, could return Tuesday
DENVER -- Jeremy Guthrie threw a touch-and-feel bullpen session Friday, and the right-hander will face hitters at Coors Field on Saturday.

The hope is Guthrie, currently on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder injury that he suffered in a bicycle accident, will return to the mound Tuesday night at San Diego, Rockies manager Jim Tracy said.

The Rockies usually ask injured players to complete a Minor League injury rehab assignment. However, Guthrie (2-1, 5.92 ERA), who last pitched in a game on April 22 and suffered the accident April 28, was throwing within three days of being hurt. That means he didn't lose conditioning in his arm.

In another move, the Rockies called up right-hander Carlos Torres from Triple-A Colorado Springs, where he was 2-1 with a 2.88 ERA in five starts. Torres, 29, will serve as a long man out of the bullpen, but he could get the start against the Padres on Tuesday if Guthrie is not ready.
