Iannetta throws, inches closer to return to Halos
ANAHEIM -- It has been a long road back for Angels catcher Chris Iannetta, but he's getting closer to returning.

Iannetta injured his wrist after getting hit by a pitch on May 2 against the Twins, the night he caught Jered Weaver's no-hitter, and caught only three games after that before having surgery. He has been on the disabled list since May 9.

He threw before Saturday's game against the Dodgers but will have to be able to execute a 200-foot long-toss before being cleared to throw to bases from behind the plate. Once he's able to do that, the Angels can think about sending him on a rehab assignment.
