Nats pitcher Stephen Strasburg will throw at least one more bullpen session before taking the mound in a spring training game.
The World Series MVP opted out of his contract to become a free agent following last season, then re-signed with Washington for $245 million over seven years.
Strasburg was 18-6 with a 3.32 ERA last season, topping 30 starts for the second time in his career and leading the NL with 209 innings.
He went 5-0 with a 1.98 ERA in five postseason starts and one relief appearance.
