Nady shows he's still got zip left on his throws
LOS ANGELES -- For a guy who has undergone Tommy John elbow surgery twice, left fielder Xavier Nady still can throw proficiently.

Nady proved that in Monday night's sixth inning by making a strong one-hop throw home to retire Adrian Gonzalez, who was trying to score on Shane Victorino's single to left field.

Though Nady endured his procedures years ago, in 2001 and 2009, he indicated that the effects of the twin surgeries linger to some degree.

"Some days feel better than others," Nady said Tuesday. "I'm thankful I can still throw and play defensively."

Nady modestly said that Dodger Stadium's close-cropped infield helped his throw skip toward home plate a little more quickly.

"I give the grass credit," Nady said. "That's a fast infield. I was just trying to get it to the cutoff man and make a decent throw."
