Atsushi Nomi tossed back-to-back bullpen sessions on Friday for the first time since he suffered a fracture in his right foot -- Nomi held a 51-pitch bullpen session on Thursday and threw 30 pitches in the bullpen on Friday.

Nomi told reporters that his foot felt great and that he'd probably throw some pitches in the bullpen once every other day moving forward.

Nomi is scheduled to begin working on fielding drills this coming week and would then only have to tackle base-running drills before he'd be ready for some game action.
