Na­tion­als’ Stras­burg set to throw bat­ting prac­tice Fri­day

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

WASHINGTON — Stephen Stras­burg is sched­uled to throw bat­ting prac­tice Fri­day as the Na­tion­als star comes back from a strained left oblique. Man­ager Matt Wil­liams said Wed­nes­day that the righthander will ac­com­pany the team on its road trip that be­gins Thurs­day in Pittsburgh. Stras­burg threw his first bullpen ses­sion Tues­day since go­ing on the dis­abled list July 5 and felt good af­ter­ward. Wil­liams also says that in­jured left fielder Jayson Werth, in­fielder An­thony Ren­don and first base­man Ryan Zim­mer­man won’t re­turn against the Pi­rates this week­end. An MRI of David Car­pen­ter’s in­jured right shoul­der was neg­a­tive, but the re­liever had an anti-in­flam­ma­tory in­jec­tion that will keep him from throw­ing for two or three days. He went on the dis­abled list July 17.
