Randy Johnson Pitches Simulated Game

San Fransisco Giants

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Randy Johnson has pitched a simulated game,
taking the mound at San Francisco's AT&T Park for the first time since July 5.

Johnson threw 53 pitches, including warmups, before the Giants played the Colorado Rockies on Monday night. He was facing batters
for the first time since going on the disabled list with a torn rotator cuff more than two months ago. Johnson has been working out near his home in Arizona.

The lanky left-hander said the next step will be to see how he feels Tuesday morning before coming up with a plan for achieving his goal of pitching out of the bullpen for the remainder of the season.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he was encouraged by the outing.
