THE REPORTER IS WRONG...sorta
from Wednesday article on the Oakland As official site:
"Righty Rich Harden, who has been rehabbing his shoulder in his native Canada, will meet up with the team in Seattle. It's unclear if he'll head back to Oakland on Sunday night or return to Canada for continued treatment."http://oakland.athletics.mlb.com/news/a ... p&c_id=oak
see right now Harden is at home in Canada resting & doing whatever small amount of rehab he can...he is set to rejoin the team in Seattle, JUST TO BE WITH THE TEAM. not to pitch.
every other source on web has him NO where close to pitching in a game...the sportsline guy just mistook the fact that Harden is meeting up with the team as maybe that he will pitch. think maybe a month from now if he has no setbacks b4 he toes an MLB rubber.
