Reynolds wants to pitch again this year

PHOENIX -- D-backs left-hander Matt Reynolds is still hoping to pitch before the end of the season.

Reynolds, who has been on the disabled list since June 10, was diagnosed with a partial tear of his ulnar collateral ligament.

At the time of the injury, Reynolds was examined by noted specialist Dr. James Andrews, who told him he did not think that Tommy John surgery would be required. Since then, Reynolds has worked at rehabbing the elbow.

"Knock on wood, it's been pretty smooth sailing," Reynolds said.

Reynolds is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday. If that goes well, he will either throw another bullpen or live batting practice Thursday.

While there's not much time left in the season, even getting into a few games would mean a lot to Reynolds.

"I would like to get back out there and just kind of be confident in myself going into the offseason that my arm is back to where it needs to be," Reynolds said. "The same for the team looking forward, I want them to be confident that I'm going to be ready to go for Spring Training next year."
