Scott Olsen's next rehab start
In what could be one of his final steps before returning to the Nationals, Scott Olsen will next his next rehab start Thursday for Class A Potomac in Winston-Salem. On Saturday, Olsen made his first rehab appearance outside of the Gulf Coast League and threw four innings for Class A Hagerstown, allowing one run on two hits and no walks with four strikeouts.
Olsen has been on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation since May 23. He went 2-2 with a 3.77 ERA before leaving a start with weakness in his surgically repaired left shoulder.
The Nationals also made a move within their minor leagues, promoting left-handed starting pitcher Daniel Rosenbaum from Hagerstown to Potomac. Rosenbaum has been one of the best pitchers in the Nationals' farm system this season. In 101 innings, Rosenbaum has a 2.32 ERA with 84 strikeouts, 28 walks and just five home runs allowed.
