Kevin Jepsen resumes throwing, aims to travel with Angels next week.

Kevin JepsenKevin Jepsen played catch for the first time since going on the disabled list April 13 with a strained right shoulder. The right-hander said he threw from up to 75 feet for seven minutes and didn’t have to cut the session short.

However, there’s still no timetable for his return.

“I don’t think it’s going to be a very long time,” he said. “The strength is there, as far as shoulder and arm strength. I just have to build it back up.”

As long as he doesn’t experience a setback, Jepsen said he’ll travel with the team to Houston next week.
