Report: Scott Olsen Set To Return Before The End Of July

Scott Olsen hasn't pitched in over a month due to inflammation in his elbow. Now, it appears that it won't be nearly that long before we see him pitch again. Adam Kilgore of Nationals Journal is reporting that we might see Olsen before the end of July.

Scott Olsen, one of the team's most consistent pitchers until stiffness in his surgically repaired left shoulder forced him to the disabled list, is progressing during his rehab in Viera, Fla., and will be ready to return to the Nationals by around July 20, according to Olsen's agent, Matt Sosnick.

The way the Nationals have been playing recently, any contribution Olsen can give would be a welcome addition. They need all hands on deck right now. Hopefully when he returns, these issues which have plagued him for the better part of the last two seasons, will cease to be an issue.
