It appears Matt Capps remains on course to rejoin the Minnesota Twins' bullpen after the All-Star break.

Capps started and pitched an inning on Monday for the Fort Myers Miracle against Jupiter, throwing seven pitches and "felt good," assistant general manager Rob Antony said in an email.

The veteran closer is scheduled to throw another inning on Wednesday at Clearwater. He's eligible to come off the disabled list on July 13 after missing time with right shoulder inflammation.

Meanwhile, top pitching prospect Kyle Gibson tossed 15 pitches in one inning of work in Gulf Coast League action against Boston. His velocity was in the 91 to 94 mph range. He got a 6-3 groundout, walked the second hitter and then got a 4-6-3 double play.

Gibson had Tommy John reconstructive surgery on his pitching elbow in September. He hadn't thrown in a game since last July 22.

"He felt good before, during and after the outing," Antony wrote.
