Harden has successful bullpen session
TORONTO -- Rehabbing hurler Rich Harden, nursing a sore lat muscle, had a successful bullpen session with hitters standing in on Thursday morning and is now geared to throw live batting practice on Monday.

"I feel good," Harden said. "I'm ready to go."

Before he's allowed to step on a big league mound again, though, the A's right-hander will have to take part in a simulated game before being sent on a Minor League rehab assignment.

Manager Bob Geren would like to see Harden throw in at least two games -- a one-inning stint and a two-inning outing -- before deciding whether a starting or relief role is best for Harden.
