However, it is unknown how much pitching Aardsma will be allowed to do in Spring Training. "It's too far away to judge," Aardsma said. "But from where I should start throwing to our first (preseason) game is four weeks. So it just depends. It's a lot easier as a reliever to be game ready as far as actual arm strength. If you're a starter, that's more of a concern. For me, the biggest thing is, if I can throw back-to-back days and have a consistent release point, then I'm game ready."
