WASHINGTON -- Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche continues to recover nicely from a right quad strain. While he has not talked to the team yet, LaRoche expects to go on a rehab assignment before he returns to the Major League field.
LaRoche is eligible to come off the disabled list on Sunday.
LaRoche's schedule on Tuesday was expected to be similar to the previous day -- hit in the batting cage, taking ground balls and run the bases.
"I will do as much as the trainers will allow," LaRoche said. "I keep trying to push that envelope a little bit, so we will see."
