Pudge feels strong, will hit on Friday
ATLANTA -- Nationals catcher Ivan Rodriguez, on the disabled list because of a strained right oblique, said he is feeling much better. During the club's workout on Thursday, Rodriguez had a long-toss session with infielder Alex Cora without any problems.

Rodriguez is planning to hit off a tee Friday. If things go well, Rodriguez will then try to take batting practice the next day.

"I'm doing fine. Today, pain free, no pain. I didn't feel anything, so that's good," Rodriguez said.
