Moran progressing toward bullpen workout

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Reliever Brian Moran continues to make progress.

Moran, who hasn't pitched since March 12 because of inflammation in his left elbow, has been throwing at a distance of 150 feet and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Friday.

He's expected to start the season on the disabled list.

"I was tender there after that last outing so I figured we would give it a little time off and I feel a lot better now," Moran said. "It has not going exactly how I would have hoped but I'm feeling better and that's all I can ask for right now. Hopefully, I'll get out on a rehab assignment sometime."

The Angels would have to offer Moran, a Rule 5 Draft selection, back to the Mariners if he's not on the active roster, but can keep him while he's on the disabled list.
