Nationals' Seth Romero: Progressing in throwing program

Romero (rib) recently resumed a throwing at the Nationals' extended spring training facility in Florida, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports. Romero had been shut down since April after suffering a stress fracture in his rib while working out at the Nationals' alternate site. The lefty will likely have several hurdles to clear in his recovery program until he's ready to head out on a rehab assignment, which will likely begin in the lower levels of the minors. Once he's fully built up his pitch count, Romero should slot into the rotation at Triple-A Rochester.

Romero is dealing with a rib injury and is unable to throw, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Romero suffered the injury while throwing a pitch last week. It's unclear exactly when he'll get back on the mound, but manager Dave Martinez said Tuesday that the lefty will be "out for a while," so he's unlikely to help the big-league roster anytime soon.
