Stults making progress in lat recovery

PHOENIX -- Left-hander Eric Stults, on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 4, with a strained left lat muscle, is making progress.

"He's ready to throw off the mound, so we brought him over here to put our eyes on him," Padres manager Bud Black said. "He's getting closer to being active."

Stults was scheduled to throw a bullpen on Monday and another on Wednesday before the club makes a decision on his next step.

"It's good to see the depth start to get healthy and back into the fold," Black said.
