Stephen Strasburg will throw Sunday
Currently on the disabled list with inflammation in his one-in-a-million right shoulder, Stephen Strasburg will play catch Sunday for the first time since the Nationals scratched him from his start Tuesday night.
The catch will be on flat ground and "not real long," Manager Jim Riggleman said. Strasburg will travel with the Nationals to Arizona and play long toss Monday. He'll take the day off from throwing Tuesday, and on Wednesday he'll throw a bullpen session that could help determine how soon he gets off the disabled list. Strasburg is eligible to come off the DL Aug. 6.
"I think he's probably been wanting to throw for a couple days now," Riggleman said. "We've again been pretty cautious. I think it's the right way to go."
