 Stephen Strasburg expected to make rehab start at Class A Potomac on Monday

WASHINGTON -- Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg will make a minor league rehab start Monday at Class A Potomac. Strasburg has been on the disabled list since late July with a right elbow nerve impingement. Pitching coach Mike Maddux said Saturday that Strasburg is likely to throw about five innings and 75 pitches in his first rehab outing. Strasburg took part in a simulated game earlier in the week, and Maddux said the 29-year-old looked "really good" and now has to build up his stamina. If Strasburg's rehab appearance goes well, Washington could activate him to pitch in his hometown of San Diego against the Padres next weekend. Strasburg is 10-3 with a 3.25 ERA in 20 starts this season. He left two innings into his last start July 23 with the injury. --- More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball
