NIH: Recoveries

First, we here at the Nationals Institute of Health would like to extend our best wishes to Tim Foli, manager of the AAA Zephyrs. He'll be out for about a week and a half after being hospitalized with symptoms of heat exhaution. Here's to wishing for a speedy recovery.

Guillen Watch: He's back, and he's back big. Guillen pounded in two of the Nationals three runs tonight, going 2 for 3, and launching a homer over that back fence of RFK that has long proven so elusive to him. That means that, since coming back from the DL, he's sitting on 4 hits, 2 runs, and 4 RBI in 7 at bats. Not a bad pair of games for Guillen, and here's hoping that he's back and better than ever.

Patterson Watch: Patterson had his second rehab start today. The game is still going on as I write this, but Patterson hit his pitch count limit during the 5th inning. Final numbers in 4.2 innings: 4 hits, 2 runs, 1 earned run, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Very firm and decent outing for Patterson. I'll digest all the post game interviews tomorrow morning, but that he went all the way to his pitch count limit means he was likely feeling no discomfort, so anyone who'll be at Saturday's game should get to see his return.
