Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg remains on course to come off the disabled list June 16 after experiencing no symptoms of his Grade 1 right lat muscle strain during a bullpen session Saturday.

“I didn’t really have any doubts I was going to feel good, just based on how I’ve been feeling the last two days,” Strasburg said.


Strasburg is scheduled throw a simulated game on Tuesday before the Nats begin a series in Colorado. If all goes as expected, he would come off the disabled list June 16, the first day he’s eligible, and start that day’s game at Cleveland, manager Davey Johnson said.

“He had a great bullpen,” Johnson aid. “Threw the heck out of the ball. Had no symptoms from the injury. He’s good to go.”
