Padilla made nine appearances for the Los Angeles Dodgers early last season before being shut down to have surgery to fuse vertebra in his neck. His previous season had been cut short as well due to the bulging discs in his neck.
WEEI reports that Padilla's fastball is said to be back up in the mid-90s. "He's healthy and he's throwing hard," one source told the paper.
