Cashner and Wells throw off flat ground

Andrew Cashner and Randy Wells continue to work their way back from shoulder and forearm injuries, respectively. They took a step forward today throwing from 90 feet off flat ground.

CHICAGO — Cubs pitchers Randy Wells and Andrew Cashner both threw from 90 feet on flat ground Wednesday as they continued their rehabs.

Cashner is on the disabled list because of a strained right rotator cuff, while Wells has a strained right forearm. There is no timetable for their returns.

“All is good,” said Cubs manager Mike Quade, who joked with the pair about being “payroll bandits.”

Payroll bandits? They’re making league minimum.
