"I haven't thrown yet. I don't think he's going to throw me in. I think he's going to give me a couple of days. I'll talk to him about it. We'll make sure we communicate. I haven't thrown yet, but we'll communicate and we'll talk to him about that. I know my swing felt fine. As far as throwing, I took another day because it's still early March.
