Out since undergoing spring training surgery to remove a bone chip from his elbow, Drew Storen began a minor-league rehab assignment last night at Single-A.

Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that Storen tossed a scoreless inning and needed just eight pitches to get three outs. It was such a brief outing that Storen actually went back to the bullpen afterward and threw more pitches.

He’s slated to make at least three more appearances in the minors before potentially returning to the Nationals, although with Tyler Clippard thriving as Washington’s closer Storen will have to settle for being a setup man after saving 43 games last season.

    Glad to see the Brownsburg kid is healing up.

    There are worse problems to have than adding another lights-out reliever to your bullpen.

      Never thought I’d ever say this about the Nats, but the rich get richer.
