LAKELAND, Fla. -- Nationals right-hander Doug Fister pitched in an intrasquad game at the Nationals' Minor League complex on Monday afternoon.

Fister, who hasn't pitched in a Major League game since March 2 because of right elbow inflammation, threw 30 pitches in two innings and allowed a home run to outfielder Jayson Werth.

"He showed no signs of anything," manager Matt Williams said. "He said he felt fine, but we have to evaluate him. He feels good about it."

According to pitching coach Steve McCatty, Fister will pitch three innings in his next start, while Williams said Fister will pitch in a Major League game.

"I thought he threw the ball well. The best part was that he had no complaints, so I thought it went well," McCatty said.
