Nationals pitcher Doug Fister will throw a rehab start Sunday at Potomac, according to CSN. 

Fister threw a bullpen session Thursday, and plans to throw four innings Sunday. He's been out since spring training due to a lat injury, but has slowly been working his way back. Fister posted a 3.67 ERA in 208 2/3 innings with Detroit last year.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

"After the fifth inning, it started getting a little colder," Gonzalez said. [The shoulder] felt a little tight." "Matt started seeing it in the sixth inning. I feel fine now. I did all my exercises. I feel great. Next question."

Gonzalez is not expected to miss his next start. He's set to take on the Astros in Houston Tuesday.

Gio Gonzalez deals with shoulder tightness in no-decision
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez made it through just five innings Wednesday against the Angels, as he dealt with some tightness in his left shoulder.

Gonzalez wasn't particularly sharp this tiome around, though he made it through the first five innings without much damage. He was charged with two runs in the sixth inning, after walking the leadoff hitter and allowing an RBI double. He allowed the two runs while scattering four hits and three walks in his five innings of work, while striking out five and throwing 49 of 83 pitches for strikes.

Manager Matt Williams told MASNSports.com after the start that he decided to pull Gonzalez after five innings as a precaution, though there is little indication this is a serious concern at this point. Assuming he is right, Gonzalez should be able to make his next start Tuesday in Houston.
