It's the first time Strasburg has thrown from a mound since Aug. 27, when he was removed from a game against the Phillies. After Monday's session, he took to Twitter:

First bullpen in the books. Felt great! Hopefully time will speed up now!less than a minute ago via Twittelator Favorite Retweet Reply

 

 

Strasburg underwent Tommy John surgery in September. Although there is a small chance he will return for this season, it's more likely that we'll see Strasburg return to the MLB in 2012.
