Paulino simulates reality

Felipe Paulino threw a simulated game today, throwing 45 pitches in two simulated innings (which sounds eerily similar to reality).'s Andrew Pentis:
A decision will be made Sunday as to the next step for Paulino, who has been on the 15-day disabled list due to shoulder tendinitis since June 21. The right-hander was 1-8 with a 4.40 ERA in 14 starts but is amenable to temporarily transitioning into a relief role.

"Right now my focus is -- I don't care if I go back [as a] starter or reliever -- my focus right now is [getting] back on the field and pitching. I want to show I'm really back. I want to show everybody I'm back. Nobody wants to end the season on the DL."
