WASHINGTON -- Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson says star pitcher Stephen Strasburg has done well in a bullpen session.

The injured right-hander threw Saturday before the Nationals played Minnesota. Strasburg is on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained muscle in his back.

Johnson said Strasburg is scheduled throw a simulated game Tuesday and is on track to come off the disabled list June 16 and start at Cleveland.

Johnson also said All-Star outfielder Bryce Harper reported that the swelling was down in his ailing left knee.

Harper will visit orthopedist James Andrews on Monday for a second opinion on the knee that has been troublesome ever since he ran into the wall at Dodger Stadium on May 13. He hasn't played since May 26 and is eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday.
