Moylan eyeing return by end of August
NEW YORK -- Reliever Peter Moylan took another step in his rehab process when he threw 60 pitches with a tempered effort level Sunday morning at Citi Field.

Having thrown five bullpen sessions over the past week, the Braves' right-hander is even more anxious to return to the bullpen by the end of this month.

"The way I'm throwing right now, I feel like I could get guys out," Moylan said. "But obviously there is a process we have to run through because it's not like I just had my left finger operated on. I know it's a process and a journey, but the end is nigh."

Moylan has been experiencing a long rehab process since undergoing surgery to repair a ruptured disc in his back in May. This was the third time he has undergone this surgical process. But the previous two surgeries came while he was selling insurance and playing baseball for an club team in his native Australia.

Once Moylan builds up his endurance and proves his back is physically sound, he will likely need to make at least four rehab appearances before the club puts him back in the bullpen.
