Coello still waiting to resume throwing

ANAHEIM -- When the Angels left Anaheim for Chicago, Seattle and the All-Star break, reliever Robert Coello traveled to Arizona to continue his rehab.

Coello had hoped a visit to the doctor on July 15 would allow him to start a throwing program, but that's not the way it turned out.

"He's not throwing the baseball yet, but his rehab is going well," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Coello, who is still in Arizona.

The 28-year old is currently on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, but previously acknowledged progress in his shoulder.

"So far, it's feeling better. Better movement, rotation," Coello said on July 6. "It's all like everybody says, build up until I start throwing again and then we will see where we're at."

Although Coello is progressing, there is still no timetable as to when he could begin a throwing program.

Coello has not pitched since June 9 because of the injury, but had posted a 4.30 ERA in 14 2/3 innings this season.
