Nady's time in OF 'awkward'

Chicago Cubs utilityman Xavier Nady, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery on his right throwing arm, said playing the outfield without being able to throw long distances has been an awkward experience this season.

"I find myself sitting out there a lot more thinking about situations instead of just coming up and firing," Nady said Thursday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "Now you've got to play the situation. Obviously, I've got no chance to throw a guy out. I've got to throw it to second. I don't know what percentage I'm at right now, but the arm has been feeling good, I'm sticking with the regimen and hopefully each day gets better and eventually I won't have any limits, and I can start doing what I need to in the outfield."
