MINNEAPOLIS -- Pat Neshek, who hasn't pitched since April 14 because of a strained middle finger on his pitching hand, expects to play catch on Wednesday.

Neshek says the finger is, "a lot better" since being given a cortisone shot on Sunday.

"The doctors said [to] wait 72 hours [from the time of the shot]," Neshek said, "and so 72 hours was about 1:00 [p.m.]. It was a little achy still. Then the doctor came in at like 6:00 and said, ‘oh, you're good to throw now.'"

If Neshek is still experiencing soreness after his throwing session Wednesday, expect the Twins to make a roster move.
