Ivan Rodriguez in Hagerstown after positive second opinion, could catch Stephen Strasburg’s rehab start

After he received an encouraging second opinion on his strained ob
lique, catcher Ivan Rodriguez reported to Class A Hagerstown and took batting practice this afternoon. The Nationals are not planning on him playing Sunday, but if trainers clear him after batting practice he could catch Stephen Strasburg’s first minor league rehab start.

Rodriguez has been out since July 6, the day before he strained an oblique during batting practice. On Friday, Rodriguez traveled to Philadelphia for a second opinion from Dr. Bill Meyers, the specialist who performed Ryan Zimmerman’s abdominal surgery. After Meyers cleared him, he went straight to Hagerstown.
