Feeling better

By Bruce Levine

Right-handed pitcher Rich Harden should be over the flu-like symptoms that have had him on the shelf the past two days. He's scheduled to throw a rehab start today for Triple-A Iowa.

Harden, who has been on the disabled list since May 18 with a strained back, will attempt to throw 5-6 innings.

According to sources, Harden had an IV put in Saturday before he left for his rehab outing. The IV was put in to replenish fluids lost through dehydration during his bout with the flu.

Also on the injury front, after pinch-hitting over the weekend, Milton Bradley is penciled in to stat Tuesday night against the Houston Astros. Bradley has missed a week with a strained right calf.
