Video: Cheng Throwing from Flat Ground
Chi-Hung Cheng

Posted Mar 21, 2007

It's been five months since Chi-Hung Cheng had surgery to repair a torn labrum and on Wednesday morning he was on field 1 of the minor league complex throwing from flat ground.

Cheng was under the watchful eye of a Blue Jays trainer as he threw from flat ground, 45-feet away. It's still unknown when Cheng will be ready to pitch in a game, or when he will be cleared to throw from the mound. The Blue Jays are taking it easy with Cheng.

The southpaw is involved in pitchers fielding practice, but is just going threw the motions and is not allowed to use a baseball during those activities. He just steps on the mound, makes the motion of throwing a pitch, and then fields an imaginery ball and makes a throwing motion to first or third base, depending on the drill.

“He will probably not pitch until the middle of next year,” Blue Jays Director of Player Development Dick Scott told InsideTheDome after Cheng had his surgery.
