Stokes came through a bullpen session on Thursday in good shape and hopes to continue building endurance in the days ahead.
"No stiffness, no soreness," Stokes said. "It feels as normal as can be. I'll keep throwing bullpens, more pitches. I threw 30 yesterday, all fastballs. I'll probably throw some changeups next bullpen. It's very encouraging. I just need to build up a little more endurance and let it go."
