Dallas Braden has setback during throwing session

The San Francisco Chronicle’s Susan Slusser tweets that Dallas Braden’s throwing session Monday didn’t go as hoped and that Braden will be reexamined by team doctors.

Braden was throwing for the first time since going on the disabled list April 18 with left shoulder inflammation. He was 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in three starts before going down.

The 27-year-old Braden has dealt with numerous injuries dating back to his time in the majors, though he did stay healthy enough to go 11-14 with a 3.50 ERA in 30 starts for Oakland last year. He missed much of 2006 following shoulder surgery, and this is the third straight year that he’s spent time on the DL.

Tyson Ross, who pitched seven scoreless innings against the Angels on Wednesday, will continue to occupy Braden’s spot in the rotation.
