A's P Dallas Braden scheduled to throw off mound Monday

Oakland Athletics pitcher Dallas Braden will pitch off a mound Monday for the first time since having shoulder surgery in May, according to MLB.com.

"Tomorrow's Christmas for me," Braden said Sunday, according to the report. "Get to bed early, leave cookies and milk out on the table, see what happens."

He's expected to throw 25 pitches -- just fastballs -- and he said that he feels healthy after rehabbing almost a year and missing the majority of the 2011 season.

"I feel great. I feel really strong," Braden said. "It's nice to know all the hard work we put into the offseason and the days you didn't want to get up and the days you didn't want to push through, you now understand why it's important to do so."
