News: Fister will throw two innings in an extended spring training outing Thursday, at which point he will get on a five-day, rotation-like schedule, progressing to rehab starts, the Washington Post's James Wagner reports. Impact: Following his two-inning effort, he will throw three innings, and will then move to rehab starts. A return in May is still the plan with Fister.(RotoWire, )

News: Fister (back) threw a 50-pitch bullpen session Monday, calling it a "step in the right direction." Impact: Fister continues to battle back from a lat strain, and as he said, Monday's session proves he is making solid progress in his recovery. It likely won't be much longer before he begins a rehab assignment in the minors, while he remains on target for an early-May return.(RotoWire, )

News: Fister (back) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Friday, William Ladson of reports. Impact: Fister fired fastballs and changeups during Friday's bullpen session, his first bullpen since leaving a March 27 rehab start with a lat strain. The Nats have eased him along in his progression and will likely continue to do so, so an early May return seems like a best-case scenario.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 10, 2014
News: Fister (back) is expected to throw a bullpen session either Friday or Saturday. Impact: Fister's first flat-ground throwing session reportedly went well, and the right-hander will likely advance to elevated ground in the coming days. He seems to be progressing nicely, but Fister still has several big hurdles ahead of him and likely won't return to the Nationals' rotation until May.(RotoWire, )

News: Fister's (back) rehab is going well and he'll progress to flat-ground throwing and then move on to bullpen sessions in the near future, the Nationals' official Twitter feed reports. Impact: He recently played catch from 60 feet, and is not experiencing any pain while throwing, so things are certainly moving in the right direction. He should be activated from the disabled list some time in May.(RotoWire, )
Apr 6, 2014
News: Fister (back) played catch from 60 feet Sunday,'s Bill Ladson reports. Impact: Fister experienced no pain while throwing, increasing the likelihood that he begins throwing a bullpen session soon. He's expected to be activated from the disabled list at some point in May.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Fister (back) did "heavy exercise" Saturday and may play catch Sunday, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports. Impact: Fister's recovery is coming along slower than expected, but the right-hander is at least taking steps in the right direction. He'll likely throw from flat ground at first, and a late April return would appear to be his best-case scenario, with May looking more likely.(RotoWire, )

News: Fister (back) did not resume his throwing program Thursday, as expected, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports. Impact: While Fister is trying to stay positive, saying he's still "moving forward" in his recovery from a lat strain, he evidently hasn't been cleared by the training staff to start up with his throwing. The plan was for Fister to throw on flat ground from about 60 feet out Thursday and slowly ramp up toward mound work. His chances of returning in April are looking minimal at this point.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Fister (back) is expected to resume his throwing program Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of reports. Impact: One week after leaving his minor league start with a lat strain, Fister will start back up with his throwing. He'll be limited to throwing on flat ground from 60 feet out to start, and will gradually build up his strength from there. The right-hander has several big hurdles ahead of him, including bullpen sessions, live sessions and likely a minor league rehab assignment, so chances are Fister will miss most, if not all, of April.(RotoWire, )
