A variety of big-name Washington Nationals players are on the mend.

Ryan Zimmerman, battling plantar fasciitis in his left foot, went through an extensive workout at Nationals Park after three innings in the field Sunday with Double-A Harrisburg. Third baseman Anthony Rendon (strained left quadriceps) continued to work with Single-A Potomac on Monday. Jayson Werth (broken left wrist) joined Triple-A Syracuse in Buffalo.

Denard Span (back spasms) is continuing exercises to strengthen his core.

Right-handed pitcher Stephen Strasburg (strained left oblique) worked towel drills from the mound in Nationals Park on Sunday. He also threw from flat ground Monday and is expected to throw a bullpen session “in the next couple days,” according to Nationals manager Matt Williams.

Reliever David Carpenter (right shoulder inflammation) is in a throwing program. Williams said there was no timeline for Carpenter to throw from a mound.
