Chatwood, out with right elbow impingement since August 8, threw a three-inning, 50-pitch simulated game Thursday and will begin a rehab assignment Sunday. Prior to being sidelined, Chatwood had been a surprising rock in the middle of the rotation for the Rockies, going 7-4 with a 3.15 ERA. Chatwood hopes to return to the Rockies next weekend, which indicates that he may only require one rehab outing. The recovery process has been smooth to this point, so such a fast return seems realistic. Oswalt, on the DL since July 8 with a hamstring injury, also completed a three-inning simulated game Thursday and will throw another simulated game before starting a rehab assignment. He had a setback earlier in the month, but all seems right now. Assuming he has no more setbacks, Oswalt could be back by early-to-mid September.
