Phillies closer Lidge to continue rehab with mound session

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Phillies closer Brad Lidge will throw off the mound Monday for the first time since his offseason elbow and knee surgeries, a few days ahead of schedule. Lidge had said his first work off a mound would be in the middle of the week.

Pitching coach Rich Dubee told the paper the plan is for Lidge to throw 20 to 25 fastballs. "He’s done a little movement stuff," Dubee said. "He’s doing fine. We hope to have him on the mound (Monday)."

Left-handed setup reliever J.C. Romero, meanwhile, is behind Lidge in his recovery from elbow surgery, but apparently not far.
