"He's throwing good," Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. "His velocity is good. He's progressing. He's mixing in all his pitches, which is good. He's right on track where he needs to be."
The Nationals have not determined when Strasburg will start throwing in a real game, but expect him to throw several more simulated games and live batting practice sessions before participating in a game. Rizzo said Strasburg is in "mid-spring training mode," and could still return to Washington in the last month of the season.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
