Stephen Strasburg Pitches In What May Be His Final Simulated Game

Stephen Strasburg threw in what may be his last simulated game in Viera, Fl. on Tuesday, hurling three innings total. According to Mark DeCotis of Florida Today, Strasburg threw 32 strikes and 29 balls for 51 pitches total. He said this was expected to be Strasburg's final simulated game.

Via Ben Goessling of MASN Sports, it appears none of the hitters Strasburg faced got a ball out of the infield. It's not clear how fast Strasburg threw, since the Nationals keep that information under wraps, but barring a snag, Strasburg appears ready for his first rehabilitation start, which could take place August 6 or 7.

CSN Washington has video of Strasburg's simulated game here, though it is only for less than a minute. It remains unclear when Strasburg ultimately returns to the Majors, or even if he returns this season. As of right now, it looks like that will happen sometime in early September.
