Guthrie on cusp of returning to Rockies
LOS ANGELES -- For the last several days, Rockies right-hander Jeremy Guthrie has been pushing to prove that he is healthy after suffering a right shoulder sprain in an April 28 bicycle accident.

Guthrie did just that on Thursday afternoon, throwing four scoreless innings for Class A Modesto at Stockton. Guthrie will rejoin the Rockies' rotation on Tuesday at San Francisco.

"It was good," Guthrie said. "The most important thing was throw pitches in a game setting and feel confident. I was able to do that.

"After the MRI [following the accident], the trainers and doctors determined that I was fortunate just to have an A/C sprain and it would get better over time. I'm 100 percent now."
