Nationals pitcher Casey Janssen tosses one scoreless inning


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Nationals pitcher Casey Janssen made his season debut on Saturday, tossing one scoreless inning with no hits allowed in Washington's 8-1 loss to the Phillies.

Janssen missed the first 41 games of the season with a right shoulder injury, but felt good after his first appearance, according to MASN Sports.

"Obviously, I wish as a whole we had played a little better," Janssen said. "But, it was good to get an inning in there and get my feet wet and be a part of this thing."

Manager Matt Williams was impressed with his poise on the mound.

"Good command of the strike zone, got the second baseman on a cutter," Williams said. "Threw (Ryan) Howard a couple of curveballs for strikes, which is good, commanded the zone. He works fast, and when he's throwing strikes like that, he can do it to both sides of the plate. I think he felt good coming out of it, no issues, that's a good sign for us."

"It’s a matter of getting out to make sure he’s hitting the ground running when he get here," manager Matt Williams said, per the Washington Post.
