Update: Harden (elbow) is working towards coming back to the starting rotation according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Recommendation: Harden was able to throw 40 pitches in a bullpen session on Friday, but had his next bullpen session pushed back a day until Monday in order to try and increase the number of pitches. "That figure needs to go up many more from a starter's perspective. Talking to (general manager) Billy (Beane), it's imperative (Harden) pitches in a starter's role, so it does us no good to get him ready as a reliever. We have to know for 100 percent if he will be viable as a starter for 2007, and pitching as a reliever doesn't accomplish that end. So he has to get up to 75-90 pitches'', head trainer Larry Davis said. He could be ready for a rehab assignment after his session on Monday, but doesn't figure to be ready to join the rotation until the final week of the season.
