It was a month ago today when Matt Bischoff made his last appearance for the Clinton LumberKings. Since then, he's been on the disabled list. The former New Haven and Purdue pitcher did not make the trip home to play the TinCaps because he was sidelined with bone chips in his right pitching elbow. But Clinton pitching coach Rich Dorman hopes to have the right hander back soon. "I know he's going to start throwing soon. The doctors did some treatment and our doctors thought with a little bit of rehabilitation and rest, the inflammation should go down and he could be throwing again. Bischoff can hit 90-plus mph, Dorman said. "He's got a pretty good feel for his slider. He has two pitches he can throw for strikes at any time at any count. He's going to be a late-inning guy. I could see him going two or three innings, or just one to finish a ballgame." Dorman said Bischoff is scheduled to start throwing June 6, and could be with the team within two or three weeks.
