Timeline becoming clear for Doug Fister following sim start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Doug Fister overcame the first hurdle in his recovery from a lat strain Thursday, as he got through a two simulated innings without an issue Thursday.

Fister will make another simulated start in five days, with a rehab assignment likely to come after. According to MLB.com, the team has a timetable for Fister that could have him back with the team within 20 days, if his two scheduled rehab starts go according to plan.

"We have to build [up Fister] like we [tried to] build him [up] this spring," Williams said. "I think he is a little bit ahead of the game in that regard. I would like him to get five innings somewhere to make sure he can up that pitch count."
