Kuroda will throw bullpen

Wanted to pass along a note from Doug Padilla:

Injured Dodgers pitcher Hiroki Kuroda will throw about 35 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday to get ready for a simulated start Tuesday.

Kuroda, who is out of the first round with a bulging disk in his neck, has shown no ill effects from a 20-pitch bullpen session Friday.
Kuroda admits he still is not at 100 percent, but is moving as quick as he can with his recovery to be ready for the National League Division Series. The simulated game Tuesday will go a long way toward deciding if he is a legitimate candidate for the NLCS roster.
