SAN DIEGO -- Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez will get another rehab start for Class A Advanced Potomac on Wednesday, according to manager Matt Williams.

The team was not happy with Gonzalez's outing against Wilmington on Friday. In that game, Gonzalez allowed eight runs in 3 2/3 innings in an 11-10 victory. In his next outing, which will be against Carolina, the Nationals would like to see Gonzalez have better command of his pitches.

But, first, Gonzalez will have a bullpen session at Nationals Park on Monday.

"Arm strength is one thing, but he was all over [the place]," Williams said about Gonzalez's outing. "He didn't walk a bunch of guys. His command wasn't what he wanted it to be. [In his next start], we'll take him to five-ish innings and 80 pitches and see where he is at. We'll see if there is any improvement from his last time outing."

The plan for Gonzalez means that right-hander Blake Treinen will get another against start against the Giants on Thursday.

Gonzalez has been on the disabled list since May 18 with shoulder inflammation
