Storen starts throwing, eyes mid-April return
WASHINGTON -- Drew Storen has started throwing again, and even though the Nationals' closer will start the season on the disabled list, the right-hander agreed with manager Davey Johnson's thoughts that he could return by mid-April.

Storen, who will miss the start of the season while recovering from inflammation in his right elbow, threw 25 pitches before Tuesday's exhibition finale vs. the Red Sox and will throw again in the next day or two.

After that, Storen's hoping to get into a game, but he isn't yet sure where that's going to be at.

"I don't know where I'm going to throw," Storen said. "It feels great. I let it go a little bit today for the first time in a while. It didn't feel bad at all."

Storen said starting the year on the DL is going to be tough, but he's looking at the long term rather than the short term.

"I'd much rather be out there in October," he said.
