GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chad Billingsley made it through the first game test for his right elbow on Monday and his arm didn't fall off.
In fact, Billingsley said he didn't even think about the partially torn ligament that has healed with platelet-rich plasma injections, avoiding Tommy John surgery so he's now being treated like any other pitcher and not a rehab case.
"I had such an adrenaline rush going warming up, so as far as worry about the elbow, no," Billingsley said. "After the first couple of throws, yeah, this is fun."
Billingsley said he wasn't worried about the results, a good thing, as the first three Cubs had extra-base hits, including a home run by Nate Schierholtz.
