Rendon goes 1-for-4 in rehab outing

Rendon goes 1-for-4 in rehab outing

CINCINNATI -- Infielder Anthony Rendon started his rehab assignment on Friday for Double-A Harrisburg at second base, which gives another indication that he will not play third base once he returns to the Nationals.

Rendon went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Harrisburg's 3-2 victory over Bowie. Nationals manager Matt Williams did not say when Rendon would be back in the big leagues.

Rendon has yet to play in the Majors this season because of a sprained MCL and strained oblique.

Williams also announced that right-hander Doug Fister (flexor strain) and left-hander Sammy Solis (inflammation in shoulder) threw on flat ground on Friday.
