Stephen Strasburg Injury Rehabilitation Remains On Schedule, Strasburg Says

Stephen Strasburg gave a brief interview with reporters out in San Francisco, where the Washington Nationals are playing their second game against the Giants. In the interview, Strasburg said his rehabilitation is on schedule and that he is throwing three bullpen sessions a week, with 30 to 40 fastballs in each.

"The idea is to put great stress on the new ligament," Strasburg said. "It'll pick up a little bit every week. I'm not really sure what's going to be in store for me next month, or the month after that. We're just taking it one day at a time, one week at a time."    

Strasburg continues to work out in Viera, Florida as he rehabs. The optimistic timeline would have him ready to return by September. He also briefly noted the one-year anniversary of his big-league debut, saying the whole experience was a "blur," at least during the actual game.
