6/29 Dempster making progress

Ryan Dempster played catch Friday, and could throw off the mound Saturday or Sunday, but he will not be ready until sometime after the All-Star break. Dempster, on the disabled list since June 16 with a sore right lat, said Friday he’s making progress.

“It won’t take me long once I get going,” Dempster said. “I haven’t said, ‘This date’ because if I feel good, it could be sooner than that. I’m completely pain free. I just don’t know how I’m going to feel throwing.”

Randy Wells subbed for Dempster for two starts but he was designated for assignment on Wednesday. The Cubs need another starter Tuesday against the Braves and manager Dale Sveum said the options include Casey Coleman, who was currently in the bullpen, and Chris Volstad, who was pitching for Triple-A Iowa. Volstad was sent to Iowa after opening the season 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA in eight starts with the Cubs. In eight starts at Iowa, Volstad was 2-3 with a 4.44 ERA, giving up 25 earned runs on 59 hits and 12 walks while striking out 41 over 50 2/3 innings.
