Player Notes
Jonathan Papelbon (intercostal) will throw a simulated game on Wednesday.

Advice: Papelbon struck out one batter in a perfect inning Monday in a minor league rehab appearance with High-A Potomac. Assuming all goes well Wednesday, he should be cleared to rejoin the Nationals' bullpen.

Jonathan Papelbon (intercostal) tossed a perfect inning Monday in his first minor league rehab appearance with High-A Potomac.

Advice: Papelbon struck out one batter and needed 10 pitches to get through the frame. He'll probably need at least one more appearance before rejoining the Nationals. Papelbon has been sidelined since June 12 with a right intercostal strain.

Jonathan Papelbon (intercostal) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Potomac on Monday.

Advice: He's only going to need a couple of appearances before he's deemed ready to rejoin the Nationals, which should come at some point next week. Shawn Kelley, who has filled in as the Nats closer in Papelbon's absence, will return to a setup role upon the veteran right-hander's return.

Jonathan Papelbon played catch on the field for a few minutes Tuesday.

Advice: A nice first step for the veteran closer, who has been on the disabled list since June 13 because of a right intercostal strain. Papelbon will probably need another three weeks of rest and rehab. Shawn Kelley is filling in at closer for the NL East-leading Nationals.
