LAS VEGAS (AP) -Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Hong-Chih Kuo said he felt no pain in his strained pitching shoulder Wednesday after his second rehab start for Triple-A Las Vegas.
The left-hander struck out seven batters in 2 1-3 innings against Sacramento, giving up a pair of singles. He also hit a batter, but used a fastball clocked at 94 mph and a sharp slider in striking out all seven batters he retired.
``I was just trying to get outs today,'' Kuo said. ``I was lucky to get that many strikeouts. I feel healthy and was glad I could throw my slider for strikes.''
Kuo threw 51 pitches, 31 for strikes. He threw 30 pitches over two innings on April 29, striking out three and allowing one hit.
He said he'll pitch five innings for Las Vegas next week.
``I feel fine. I'm going to keep working on it here,'' he said.
Kuo went 1-1 with a 3.07 earned run average in five starts for the Dodgers last September, and started Game 2 of their divisional series against the New York Mets. He gave up two runs in 4 1-3 innings.
