John Lackey, on the DL because of a triceps strain, has extended his long-toss program to 120 feet and, Scioscia said, has been "throwing aggressively" off flat ground at 60 feet.
Lackey is scheduled to begin throwing off a mound this week and, barring a setback, could return to the rotation in the first half of May.

John Lackey (triceps) threw 47 pitches off the mound prior to Sunday's game.

According to the Los Angeles Times, John Lackey (triceps) "appears on track to return in about three weeks."
Lackey pitched a one-inning simulated game Wednesday and said afterward that he felt "really good." He's scheduled to throw another simulated game Saturday, at which point he could be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment that's expected to last 3-4 starts.
