No updates on Stephen Strasburg
The Nationals have not received any further clarification on Stephen Strasburg's injury to his right elbow/forearm area. They have yet to definitively schedule his arthrogram -- the MRI exam that includes shooting dye into the specified area -- but are hopeful it will be completed Thursday. Strasburg appears to be at Nationals Park today, but he was not in the clubhouse while reporters were allowed in.
While the Nationals still await word on Strasburg, here are a few updates on other Nats, courtesy of Head Athletic Trainer Lee Kuntz:
-Ross Detwiler will throw a bullpen session tomorrow. He has not experienced any setbacks with his right hip trouble, and the Nationals hope to get him in a rehab start soon.
-Garrett Mock had a stiff neck the Nationals believe to be "travel-related." He's recovered from that and, after he throws a bullpen session, he will resume his schedule of rehab starts.
-Jesus Flores threw to bases today down in Viera, Fla, but he is still making slow progress with his right shoulder. He is also taking batting practice, but the Nationals have still been unable to get him into an actual.
-Chien-Mien Wang is in the same boat. He is throwing off the mound, which he's been doing for months.
