Brad Lidge hoping for return to game action next week

Brad Lidge threw a problem-free bullpen session this morning and afterward told Todd Zolecki of MLB.com that he’s hoping to return to game action within 3-4 days.

Lidge has been sidelined for a week with right biceps tendinitis, but said his arm “felt really good” while throwing 35 pitches today and is scheduled for another bullpen session Sunday.

Zolecki also asked Lidge about his decreased velocity prior to the injury, but the closer seemed unconcerned: “It’s coming. My pop will never be there until the first game I’m closing during the regular season.”
