Brad Penny Throws Off A Mound, Due Back Sometime After The All-Star Break

Michael Bleach of Cardinals.com reports that Brad Penny threw off a mound Monday for the first time since his grand slam swing on May 21 took him out of the rotation indefinitely. 

The right-hander pitched from the bullpen for about 20 minutes, tossing from both the windup and stretch.
