He had surgery to repair the labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. The hope is that this will prevent the oblique injuries that may have been a result of his overcompensating for the left shoulder. I think he is being cautious, which is good imo.

He just said yesterday that he believes that he will be healthy and ready to pitch when the season begins.

The A's continue to say (in the local papers) that he will be ready to throw come opening day.

Even if he misses a few starts, he is still an ace in my book. I would draft Harden in my top 10 pitchers easily. He has huge upside and a bright future for a keeper league. I am glad he is being cautious. ;-D

From Fantistics this morning:
A's right-hander Rich Harden cleared another hurdle in his recovery from a torn left labrum when he threw to hitters Monday. By all accounts, the session was a success. ``He's throwing very well,'' Manager Ken Macha said. ``We're very pleased with that.''Harden, who underwent surgery on his non-throwing shoulder after the 2005 season, has been working out in Arizona for nearly two months. This was the first time he threw with hitters at the plate. ``I felt really good,'' Harden said. ``I felt strong. I didn't get too tired. The only concern is my endurance.''Harden threw 30 pitches after a 31-pitch warm-up in the bullpen. He said he threw four sliders and increased his velocity to about ``95 percent'' on some pitches. Great News for the Harden Keeper League owners. If he's healthy, Harden could easily finish as a top 5 fantasy pitcher this season. Yes he's that good
