(John McDonnell)

In total, Strasburg threw roughly 50 pitches. The latest simulated game shows how near Strasburg is making a minor league rehab start, his next significant step in returning from Tommy John surgery. “I think he’s getting close,” Williams said.

Strasburg could return to the majors in September if he continues to make progress, but only if the Nationals deem him ready.
