Stras­burg on track to re­join ro­ta­tion

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Stephen Stras­burg threw a bullpen ses­sion Satur­day, which would put him on track to re­join the Na­tion­als’ ro­ta­tion on Tues­day and start against the Braves.

Man­ager Matt Wil­liams said the Na­tion­als wouldn’t make a de­ci­sion un­til the team sees how Stras­burg (left trapez­ius mus­cle strain) feels on Sun­day.

“If he comes out of this bullpen fine, he was at 80 pitches in his last re­hab start, there’s no rea­son he couldn’t go to 95 in a big league game and do that,” Wil­liams said. “We’ll have to see about his health, though. We’ll have to make sure com­ing out of this — you know, throw­ing bullpens is one thing, but the start that he had was an in­di­ca­tion he feels okay. This last bullpen will give us fur­ther in­di­ca­tion that he’s good com­ing out of that and ready for a next one. There’s no rea­son he wouldn’t be in our ro­ta­tion if he feels good.”
