Lance McCullers Jr. and Jake Odorizzi both throw bullpens Tuesday.

McTaggart reported Tuesday both Lance McCullers Jr. and Jake Odorizzi threw bullpens Tuesday, while both aim for another Friday. McCullers threw cutters and sat around 85-87 mph on his velocity over 25 pitches, while he’ll throw off flat ground Wednesday and Thursday.

For Odorizzi, the righty threw 20 pitches and is running but not sprinting. McTaggart noted the next big step for Odorizzi is fielding his position as he’ll continue to run this week before his Friday bullpen.
