Scott Olsen sent to extended spring training

Nationals starter Scott Olsen is still unable to throw following his recent setback, and the Nationals have sent him to extended spring training in Viera, Fla., General Manager Rizzo said.

The Nationals placed Olsen on the disabled list May 22 after he left a start the previous day with stiffness and inflammation in his surgically repaired left shoulder. Olsen did not throw for five days and then began rehabbing. He threw two bullpen sessions and seemed poised to make a minor league rehab start, but while playing catch last week he felt weakness in his shoulder.

Olsen had hoped to play catch Monday, but he did not. With the weakness and stiffness still present in his shoulder, the Nationals decided to send him to Viera, making his return indefinite.

Olsen is 2-2 with a 3.77 ERA in eight starts

Well, this move will mean some rehab work in the minors, and set him back until mid-July at the earliest. Damn.
