PHILADELPHIA — Doug Fister threw 76 pitches over 3 2/3 innings Friday night in what is expected to be the right-hander’s final rehab start before joining the Nationals’ rotation next week.

Pitching for Class AA Harrisburg at Reading, Fister allowed two runs and two hits, walking three while striking out five. He cruised through three scoreless innings before fading in the fourth, walking the first two batters he faced and then serving up a double.

Fister was slated to go five innings and/or 80 pitches, but as the fourth inning wore on, he was pulled early.

Barring any physical setbacks, Fister now is slated to rejoin the Nationals and come off the disabled list Wednesday, making his debut against the Dodgers at Nationals Park. The right-hander has been on the DL since straining his lat muscle on the final day of spring training.
