TUCSON, Ariz. – Mark Buehrle threw his scheduled side day on Tuesday, and said he showed no ill-effects from the sore shoulder that forced him to be scratched from Monday’s intrasquad game.
The White Sox left-hander said he threw between 40-50 pitches, and didn’t hold back on his repertoire.
“Everything will be ready by Friday,’’ Buehrle declared.
That’s when he is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut against Arizona.
The one point Buehrle did bring up is he’s not the youngster that used to be able to just roll into camp, throw his bullpen session and go home.
“The older you get, the more you have to do,’’ Buehrle said. “A couple of years ago, I would come throw and leave and come throw again. Now, you have to do all this arm stuff and maintenance stuff to get you ready for next start.’’
