Outman brings the heat in rehab outing
DENVER -- Rockies left-hander Josh Outman, rehabbing a right oblique strain that has kept him out of the Majors this season, reached 97 mph during a two-inning rehab stint on Thursday for Double-A Tulsa, according to manager Jim Tracy.

Outman threw 25 of his 36 pitches for strikes, giving up a run on two hits, with three strikeouts and one walk.

"I understand he was electric in the first inning and started to get a little bit tired toward the end of the second inning," Tracy said. "The two hits were more of the seeing-eye variety."

Tracy said Outman will pitch on Saturday and Sunday for Tulsa before being evaluated.

Outman, 27, went 8-8 with a 3.75 ERA in starting and relief duty for the Athletics over the last three seasons. The Rockies see Outman as an important bullpen piece -- a power arm who can either face select left-handers or pitch multiple innings.
