Stephen Strasburg throws
Strasburg has been on the 15-day disabled list since last Thursday with stiffness in his right shoulder.
He is scheduled to take Wednesday and Friday off from throwing, then will toss a simulated game in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Manager Jim Riggleman says, "If all those things fall into place, he'll be on schedule to pitch on Tuesday."
That would mean Strasburg would come off the disabled list next Tuesday to face Florida at home.
Strasburg (5-2, 2.32 ERA) is on the disabled list retroactive to July 22.
