Reynolds (elbow) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Friday, Jack Magruder of Fox Sports Arizona reports.

Reynolds threw off a mound for the second time since he had Tommy John surgery last September. His next step will apparently be pitching in the instructional league Wednesday for his first rehab appearance. If he pitches well and has no ill effects, a couple of outings in the league may be all he needs before rejoining the Diamondbacks.

Reynolds (elbow) threw 29 pitches in a live batting practice session Friday.

Friday's live session marked Reynolds' first since he underwent Tommy John surgery last September. Live batting practice is typically one of the final hurdles a pitcher must clear before heading out for a rehab assignment, and while the team may want to see him throw several sessions, there's at least a chance Reynolds is assigned to an affiliate in the next week or so. The lefty has a career 3.58 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 153.1 innings.
