GM Terry Ryan said Nolasco (elbow) will throw his first bullpen session over the weekend, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Analysis:

Nolasco has been steadily increasing his long-toss distance this week as he recovers from right elbow soreness. It's uncertain just yet how many pitches Nolasco will throw in his session, but the right-hander will probably need to throw at least one additional session after the weekend before embarking on a possible rehab assignment.
