      Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Could return Tuesday

      Stephen Strasburg (neck) will throw one last bullpen session Saturday and is expected to take the mound against Philadelphia on Tuesday if all goes according to plan, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.Manager Dave Martinez declined to confirm Strasburg for Tuesday's start, but it appears as though the right-hander will bypass a rehab assignment unless this weekend's bullpen session isn't up to par. Strasburg felt good Thursday morning following a 70-pitch simulated game Wednesday, which bodes well for his potential activation.

      Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Throws 70 pitches in sim game

      Stephen Strasburg (neck) said his simulated game went well Wednesday, and the next step will likely be a start, although he didn't say where that would be, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.He said he threw 70 pitches in the sim game and if he feels good Thursday, he will "get ready for a start." Considering he gave up nine runs over his last 6.2 MLB innings before hitting the disabled list with a pinched nerve in his neck, and that he has been out since July 20, it seems likely that Strasburg will need at least one rehab start before the Washington Nationals insert him back into the big-league rotation. His next step should become clear in the coming days.

      Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: About two weeks away from return
