Nationals Starter Making Good Progress; Aiming to Pitch Again Before Season's End

Mackenzie Gore threw a bullpen session on Saturday and is reportedly feeling well. 

He's scheduled to throw another session in a couple of days, before progressing to facing live hitters. 
Gore has not pitched since July 25th due to left elbow inflammation.

Gore was acquired by the Washington Nationals as part of the massive Juan Soto deal at the trade deadline. He has yet to make his Nationals debut. 

The twenty-three-year-old rookie started off his season phenomenally but stumbled a bit prior to his injury. In 13 starts on the season, Gore has posted a 4.50 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and a 72/37 K/BB ratio over 70 innings. He's posted a 4-4 record. 

Nationals should release a timetable for Gore's return in the coming week but, regardless, it appears likely that we'll see him make at least one start for his new team before the end of the season.
