Doesn't look like the timetable has changed but it sounds a bit more positive...
Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports:
Right-hander John Patterson had his first bullpen session since he went on the disabled list on April 28 because of a forearm strain. He threw 45 pitches, all of them fastballs.
"[The arm] feels good. I don't think about it at all," Patterson said. "I'm just throwing the ball and trying to get back on the mound. I have to get my timing down, that's going to be the big thing the next couple of days, is just working on timing."
Patterson will play catch on Saturday and have another bullpen session on Sunday. He also is expected to throw batting practice on Tuesday.
Patterson is hoping to play a regular season game sometime in June.
