Paulino feels good after throwing batting practice

Paulino feels good after throwing batting practice


KANSAS CITY -- Right-hander Felipe Paulino, getting over shoulder stiffness, pitched Monday afternoon without a problem as he continues his delayed comeback from elbow surgery.

Paulino threw a batting practice session with Royals teammates Chris Getz, Elliot Johnson and George Kottaras taking the swings.

"It was just a 25-pitch BP," manager Ned Yost said. "He was fine, strong, a little erratic. He felt good. He'll throw a two-inning simulated game on Thursday, then a three-inning simulated game on Tuesday."

It has not been decided whether next Tuesday's session will be with the club at Minnesota or if Paulino will go to Surprise, Ariz., to throw.
