Quick Bergesen Update

Orioles pitcher Brad Bergesen has been cleared to throw off a mound Saturday for the first time since injuring his shoulder during a commercial shoot two months ago.

The Orioles had considered scheduling a third flat-ground session for Bergesen before clearing him for a bullpen session on Monday, but the right-hander has made significant progress and apparently is ahead of schedule.

Bergesen has been saying all along that he felt better each time he's thrown and had no worries about eventually catching up to the other pitchers in camp.
