Joe Blanton (shoulder) played catch Tuesday.
As noted by Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post, Blanton was playing catch with teammate Sammy Solis (elbow) as both pitchers are working their way back from injuries. Blanton struggled to the tune of a 9.49 ERA through 12 1/3 innings before landing on the disabled list last week with right shoulder inflammation. The Nationals haven't mapped out a specific timetable for his return, but he's already moving in the right direction. May 23 - 2:43 PM
