Nats' Assistant GM Bob Boone on Sirius/XM MLB Network's "Power Alley" Talking Jordan Zimmerman and Chien-Ming Wang:
"Both of them are coming [along] great. Jordan Zimmermann, in particular, is way ahead of schedule, we’re actually slowing him down a little bit. But, we're not planning on really having him involved a lot this year. He should be out by the end of July, 1st of August...He's throwing terrific, the scary part of that is coming off [elbow reconstruction]...when he's pitching it's like, 'Boy, he's back!', but you don't want to have a setback..."
"[Chien-Ming] Wang is doing well from my reports. I have not seen him, I talked to our head trainer the other day in the minor leagues and he said he's feeling really good, so, we're just keeping our fingers crossed."
"We take a pretty conservative approach, especially with the pitching, so, they're going to be when they're ready, but it's looks like they are going to be ready and that's the big thing."
