CINCINNATI -- Reds right-handed reliever Jose Arredondo, who is on the 15-day DL with a strained right forearm (retroactive to July 7) long tossed and then threw a side bullpen session on Sunday.

Head trainer Paul Lessard estimated that Arredondo threw at about 80 percent intensity.

"He was comfortable, that's what I was looking for," Lessard said. "He's almost there."

Left-hander Matt Maloney began a Minor League rehab assignment on Saturday by pitching for the Rookie League Arizona League Reds in Goodyear.

Maloney, who is on the 60-day disabled list with a broken rib, pitched two scoreless innings with two hits and two strikeouts. Of his 20 pitches, 17 were strikes.
