Seattle Mariners Offseason News: Free Agent David Aardsma Thorws For First Time

Seattle Mariners right handed relief pitcher David Aardsma took a big step in his rehabilitation after Tommy John surgery Wednesday, throwing for the first time since the injury according to his twitter account:

This is a big step for Aardsma, but still is early in the process as it usually takes 12-18 months to completely recover from Tommy John surgery. When he does eventually return, he will likely be used as a middle reliever to prove himself before he gets a chance to close again. He will probably need a new team as well, seeing that he opted for free agency back in October.
