by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg to throw bullpen session on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/4/2015) Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg is set to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday, the next step in his recovery from an oblique strain. Strasburg threw an impressive rehab start on Monday, striking out 11 batters in 5 2/3 innings with Triple-A Syracuse.

"I felt good. My stuff is there," Strasburg said, per CSN Washington DC. "Just try to keep doing the same things and working on the stuff I’ve been doing. It’s going in the right direction."

Strasburg came out of that start feeling good, and the Nationals will determine whether he needs another rehab start or if he's good to return from the DL, following his bullpen session on Wednesday.

"When you have 11 strikeouts you’re doing something right," manager Matt Williams said. "It shows command for getting ahead in the count. We rely on the people that see him pitch, as well, beyond the stat sheet. Command for his breaking ball as there. Changeup off the fastball was there. And the fastball sat at 95, 96 and touched 98, so that’s all positive things for him moving forward. It means he’s feeling good and he’s got no apprehension letting the ball go."

This season, Strasburg is 5-5 with a 5.16 ERA in 13 starts for the Nationals. He has been on the disabled list twice so far this season.

D-Backs SP Chase Anderson may make one more rehab start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Anderson was expected to replace Zack Godley in the rotation, but Hale said he is considering using a six-man rotation.

"That would help that, just get guys extra days," Hale said. "With [Patrick Corbin] coming back from Tommy John and all our young guys starting to pile up the innings. But it's tough to do that with still keeping seven bullpen guys. We would probably have to lose a position player. That's a very tough decision to make."

Nationals OF Denard Span getting close to live batting practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) Nationals outfielder Denard Span, who began baseball activities Saturday, could be close to taking live batting practice, manager Matt Williams said Monday.

“In the next couple of days we’ll get him out for a live BP session and then look for him to get some live BP later in the week," Williams said. "Then running the bases. That’s kind of of the final step. Depending on how he feels, we’ll progress to that. We’ll see."

Span, who is on the disabled list due to a back injury, will go on a rehab assignment before returning.

“Volume. It’s going to be volume, probably,” Williams said. “Limited in the cage is one thing, but getting out there and just reacting without having to think about it is key, too. But if he can go through multiple BP sessions and early work and regular defensive work that he does, then he should be fine to get out there and play somewhere.”
