Stephen Strasburg plays more catch

Stephen Strasburg, on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, stayed on track today by playing catch alongside the rest of the Nationals pitching staff in right field at Chase Field. He tossed with John Lannan from as far as 120 feet, throwing easily.

Strasburg will throw a bullpen session tomorrow and rest Wednesday. On Thursday, he will take his biggest step since the Nationals scratched him from a start last Tuesday, a simulated game throwing to live batters.

This evening, Strasburg stayed on the field and shagged batting practice with the rest of his teammates. Basically, he did the same thing as his teammates. "It's catch," pitching coach Steve McCatty said, half-jokingly. "I'm sure ESPN will be here."
