Koda Glover set to rehab with Senators on Wednesday morning
Washington Nationals reliever Koda Glover is expected to join the Harrisburg Senators on a major league rehab assignment for Wednesday’s matinee game at FNB Field against the Erie SeaWolves.
On Washington’s disabled list since April 26 with a left hip impingement, the 23-year-old was 0-1 with two saves and a 4.15 ERA in 11 appearances this season. Glover threw a bullpen session on Monday for the first time since landing on the DL that cleared the way for his rehab assignment. The 6’5″right-hander has stated publicly that he he expects to be activated from the 10-day disabled list by the end of this week.
Glover’s meteoric rise through the Nationals’ system last season culminated in his debut on July 20 when he recorded three outs on four pitches to secure an 8-1 victory over the Dodgers. In 17 games over 22.1 innings with the Senators in 2016, Glover went 2-0 with a 3.22 ERA while striking out 29 and walking seven.
