Green to pick up baseball soon

Reliever Sean Green, the lone remaining piece from the three-team trade two winters ago that involved the Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians, is scheduled to begin tossing a baseball within days, pitching coach Dan Warthen indicated. Green has been on the DL since April 11. Initially he was diagnosed with a strain in his right rib cage area. It subsequently discovered that he had a fracture to a rib.
