Ross Ohlendorf threw a bullpen session at Nationals Park on Wednesday as he works his way back from right shoulder inflammation, and as long as the next two days of rest go as expected, should be ready for a minor league rehab start on Saturday.
Manager Davey Johnson said the Nats have not decided where Ohlendorf will rehab and will determine how long he pitches later this week.
"Maybe he just goes three innings and he has to come back and go five. Maybe he feels good enough and goes further and he can come back earlier. We want to get him stretched out so he can go five."
