Rich Harden is on the right track rehabbing from his mid-back muscle strain.  Harden has been on the disabled list since May 18th and he made his 1st rehab start for Triple-A Iowa on Monday night.  Harden threw 70 pitches in 4 1/3 innings, throwing 44 pitches for strikes.  He allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits and 2 walks.  He also had 6 strikeouts.

Harden is 4-2 with a 4.74 ERA during the 2009 MLB schedule.  Assuming Harden does not experience any further discomfort over the next few days, Manager Lou Pinella could call upon Harden to return to the starting rotation on Saturday against the Minnesota Twins at Wrigley Field.  We’ll keep you posted over the next couple of days…
