Nationals' Strasburg to throw batting practice Friday
Manager Matt Williams said Wednesday that the right-hander will accompany the team on its road trip that begins Thursday in Pittsburgh. Strasburg threw his first bullpen session Tuesday since going on the disabled list July 5 and felt good afterward.
Werth has been sidelined since May 15 with a fractured left wrist. He played nine innings in a rehab game Tuesday. Rendon has been out since June 24 with a strained quadriceps. He had five at-bats during his rehab assignment Tuesday.
An MRI of David Carpenter's injured right shoulder was negative, but the reliever had an anti-inflammatory injection that will keep him from throwing for two or three days. He went on the disabled list July 17.
