With general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. watching from the side, Lidge threw about 20 pitches to catcher Paul Hoover. Afterward, he met briefly with pitching coach Rich Dubee.

Closer Brad Lidge just got done throwing his first bullpen session since his knee and elbow surgeries. There did not appear to be any physical set-backs. With general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. watching from the side, Lidge threw about 20 pitches to catcher Paul Hoover. Afterward, he met briefly with pitching coach Rich Dubee.

Lidge, who is coming off a season in which he blew 11 saves and posted a 7.21 ERA, underwent elbow surgery on Nov. 13 to repair flexor pronator tendon and remove a loose body. He was supposed to be throwing eight weeks later, but he then had arthroscopic knee surgery to remove a portion of his mensicus and a loose body on Jan. 13.
