Locke better, still not at full strength


Recommended Posts

JUPITER, Fla. -- Jeff Locke on Thursday played catch for the first time since the weekend, but the Marlins' left-hander isn't sure when he will be back on the mound.


Dealing with left biceps tendinitis, Locke made 15-20 light tosses from 60 feet, but noted he isn't yet at full strength.


"It's a lot better," Locke said, "but we're not going to say, 'Live BP tomorrow.' We're going to take the next step, whatever that is."


The discomfort Locke is feeling is more towards the shoulder than the elbow. The club doesn't believe the ailment is serious.


"It doesn't feel bad," Locke said. "It just isn't 100 percent yet, that's for sure."


A free-agent signing in December, Locke is in the mix for either a rotation or bullpen spot.


"There's still some irritation in there," Locke said.
