Harden trying to come back from shoulder surgery

Posted:

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- The Minnesota Twins are being patient with Rich Harden, who is trying to win a job on the team after missing a season because of shoulder surgery.

A former power pitcher, Harden is trying to revive his career following the rotator cuff operation on Jan. 31 last year.

After going 10-2 for Oakland and the Chicago Cubs in 2008, when he struck out 181 batters in 148 innings, Harden was 9-9 for the Cubs in 2009, 5-5 for Texas in 2010 and 4-4 for Oakland in 2011. Harden started light throwing last July. He's with the Twins on a minor league contract.
