Jeff Niemann (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Wednesday.

It's the first time he's thrown from a mound since he left his start on September 1 with right shoulder inflammation. "It was a great day. It's also bittersweet, too, to be able to say [that I'm healthy] with one day left to go [in the season]," Niemann said. "Sad and disappointing, but I'm glad we got back to the point where I'm healthy and able to throw a ball again." Niemann added that he's "really confident" he'll have a normal offseason. He could play winter ball.
