Storen OK after strep throat, pitching soreness

VIERA, Fla. -- Nationals closer Drew Storen said he is feeling much better after a bout with strep throat. He also said that he had normal pitching soreness that is not considered serious.

Storen has not pitched since March 7 against the Cardinals, but he played catch Wednesday. It's not known when Storen will play in an exhibition game.

"It was nothing huge," Storen said. "But we still have time. That's kind of the main thing -- seeing the big picture."
