BOSTON -- The Orioles got good news Wednesday on a trio of pitchers on the mend at the team's spring facility, including top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy, who will start a throwing program on Thursday.

Bundy was placed on the Minor League disabled list with right elbow discomfort and has been playing catch pain-free. He will continue a progression under pitching rehab coordinator Chris Correnti down in Sarasota, Fla.

Right-hander Steve Johnson (lat strain) is slated to throw a game in extended spring on Saturday, and he will go either three innings or around 55 pitches.
