Pitching coach Rick Kranitz said Koji Uehara would throw a bullpen session on Friday, face hitters in simulated action on Sunday and perhaps pitch in a game on Mar. 24. Interestingly enough, the 24th was the date the Japanese media was throwing around within a day or two after Uehara first tweaked his left hamstring. Kranitz laid out the whole plan, but conceded that everything would depend on how Koji feels after Friday's workout. "You can't decide on anything past the side session,'' Kranitz said, "but you have to plan it out."
