Storen throws without feeling any pain

WASHINGTON -- Nationals closer Drew Storen, who is on the disabled list after a procedure to remove a bone chip in his right elbow, made 100 throws on flat ground on Wednesday at Nationals Park without feeling any pain.

Storen will have the day off on Thursday and throw again on flat ground on Friday. It's not known when Storen will start throwing off the mound, but he is still projected to play his first Major League game after the All-Star break.

"[The arm] feels different, but it's where it should be," Storen said. "It's going to take time to get back."
