He said he threw 40-45 pitches in his previous bullpen session, and he'll increase the workload by 20 pitches Monday.

Harrison underwent a second operation in May to address a herniated disk in his lower back. Harrison said earlier this month he looked to return at the end of August. It appears he is ahead of his projected target.
