WASHINGTON (AP) -Randy Johnson threw a bullpen session Friday at Chase Field in Phoenix and is on schedule to make a minor league start Sunday as he works to join the Arizona Diamondbacks after offseason back surgery.
The five-time Cy Young Award winner did some fielding practice and bunting, too.
``Everything went well,'' manager Bob Melvin said before Arizona's game at the Washington Nationals.
Johnson is slated to pitch for Class-A Visalia on Sunday, then for Triple-A Tucson on April 13. What hasn't been announced is when Johnson will make his regular-season debut with Arizona.
``We've put a lot of thought into it. We're not sure yet,'' Melvin said.
``We've looked at several different places, but until we get through this, I really don't want to say what day. Maybe after next time, if everything goes well, we'll look to see what the plan is,'' Melvin added. ``But right now, I don't want to commit to a day.''
