Bryan Bullington (taken off the active roster with pain in the right side of his lower back) has his sights on returning to the active roster before the end of Inter-league play.  That could mean some time during the Nippon Ham series at Sapporo Dome (June 15-16) or the make-up game against Nippon Ham at Mazda Stadium (June 18).

Bullington was at Mazda Stadium on Monday getting treatment for his back.  He no longer feels pain during forward movement, but does still feel some pain when moving from side-to-side.
