Fantasy Impact:

It was the first bullpen session for Bubic after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He threw around 15 pitches with all of them being fastballs. "It's good to get off the slope again," Bubic said Wednesday. "Obviously, it's been awhile. But overall, I feel pretty good today, feel like I bounced back well. It's just exciting to do normal pitcher things again. … It's more of a mental hurdle than it is physical because early on, when you first start your throwing program, you know you've done the rehab and it's been repaired. You should be good to go. But I think it's just like that last little bit of letting the ball go and really trusting your body again." Bubic is scheduled for another side session on Friday and will have about nine weeks of bullpens before he faces hitters.
