Fedde (shoulder) has been throwing from 90 feet on flat ground and says his shoulder is pain-free, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.
He will throw from that distance again Sunday and will start extending the distance Tuesday after an off day. Fedde has been out since July 4 due to shoulder inflammation but could embark on a rehab assignment sometime in August.
Fedde (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
Fedde underwent an MRI on Wednesday, which cleared him of structural damage, but it did show inflammation. Following the diagnosis, he'll likely be on the shelf until after the All-Star Game. Jefry Rodriguez was recalled in a corresponding move.
Fedde's MRI revealed inflammation but no structural damage in his right shoulder, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
Fedde said that he was encouraged by the news but he will need to take a few days off, which could warrant a short stay on the disabled list. The right-hander was forced to leave Wednesday's game in the second inning after experiencing a dip in velocity.
Fedde left Wednesday's start with right shoulder stiffness and is undergoing an MRI, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
The Nats wasted no time in sending Fedde for an MRI after Fedde experienced a noticeable dip in velocity from the first to the second inning. He threw 25 pitches in total, allowing two hits while recording three outs before being lifted. Matt Grace threw four scoreless innings in relief of Fedde (46 pitches) and could make a spot start early next week with Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) still working his way back.
Fedde was removed from his start Wednesday against the Red Sox in the second inning with an undisclosed injury, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. He retired three of the five batters he faced before departing.
The source of Fedde's injury isn't yet known and may not be established until after a post-game examination, but the right-hander was in visible discomfort after tossing his 25th and final pitch of the afternoon. According to Castillo, Fedde opened the start with a sinker that sat around 93-to-94 miles per hour before the offering dipped into the 80s by the second inning, suggesting an arm issue could be in play. Matt Grace was summoned in relief of Fedde and will likely cover the bulk of the innings for the Nationals with only six other relievers available in the Washington bullpen following the demotion of Tim Collins prior to the contest.
