the only stuff that I found...
Lowry threw a 100-pitch, full-intensity bullpen session Saturday and next will test his strained oblique muscle in a simulated game, to be followed by a minor-league rehab assignment. There is no timetable for his return.

Left-hander Noah Lowry is scheduled to throw a simulated game today in which he is expected to make 60-70 pitches. If it goes well, Lowry could make a rehabilitation start Friday, possibly with Class A San Jose.
Lowry strained a right oblique muscle in his first start of the season.
``The key for him is to increase intensity,'' trainer Stan Conte said. ``We know this particular injury has to do with intensity of throwing.''
Conte said Lowry needs ``at least one, maybe two'' rehabilitation starts.
Lowry said he felt ``no tightness or soreness'' after a 70-pitch bullpen session Saturday.
