Notes: Closer Drew Storen threw off a mound for the first time Friday and came through his second bullpen session Monday morning well.

• Right-hander Ryan Mattheus will make a second minor league rehab appearance Tuesday and likely at least one more before the Nationals evaluate the reliever’s status in his return from a partial tear in the plantar fascia of his left foot.
