The Pittsburgh Pirates may be getting Jason Grilli back soon.

On Wednesday the 36-year-old reliever threw a 25-pitch simulated game. With no complaints thus far the right hander should head to Double-A Altoona this weekend.

The Pirates could have Grilli back in their bullpen in less then two weeks.

An All-Star this season, Grilli collected 30 saves with a 2.34 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP in 45 games for the Pirates before suffering a forearm injury.
