Penny hits 98 mph in rehab start

Dodgers right-hander scheduled to start on Friday vs. Giants

LOS ANGELES -- Injured Dodgers pitchers were on Minor League rehab assignments Saturday night in two time zones.

At Oklahoma City, starter Brad Penny pitched for Triple-A Las Vegas. He made 55 pitches (44 strikes) over four innings, allowing two runs on six hits (three doubles) with four strikeouts and one walk. His fastball was clocked at a high of 98 mph.

Penny, out since June 15 with shoulder tendinitis, is scheduled to start for the Dodgers on Friday night in San Francisco if he comes out of this outing healthy.

At San Bernardino, reliever Scott Proctor pitched two-thirds of an inning in a rehab appearance for Class A Inland Empire, charged with three runs (one earned) with three hits and a strikeout. He has been on the disabled list since June 22 with elbow tendinitis.
