No Rush for Guillen to Return


Byline: Ken Wright, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - The Washington Nationals don't want to rush outfielder Jose Guillen's rehabilitation from his left wrist injury.

More to the point, the Nationals don't want Jose Guillen to rush Jose Guillen. As a result, the Nationals might try to hold in check his vigorous rehab regimen on the injury, which he suffered while rehabbing his left shoulder in spring training after offseason surgery.

Guillen resumed some baseball-related activities - he hit off a tee - in the past two days. That has Guillen talking about perhaps playing in a spring training game as early as next week, even though it was just 10 days ago that a second medical opinion revealed surgery was not needed to fix tendon damage in his left wrist.

"He's not rushing anything with the medical people that said what he's allowed to do," Nationals manager Frank Robinson said. "It's just that sometimes he overdoes it and doesn't stick to the program. I think they have him on a strict program this time around, and he's doing that. If he's able or capable of getting in a ballgame next week, I'm sure it's with the medical people's blessings."

Guillen, 29, led Washington in runs (81), hits (156), total bases (264), home runs (24) and RBI (76) last season despite a myriad of injuries.

"He's a lot like Joey Eischen; you can't hold those guys back," Robinson said. "They're going to do what they have to do or want to do in the first place. They know one gear, and that's all out. Jose has a mind-set of his own and feels like he wants to be on the field and wants to be out there and help his teammates. I'd rather have somebody to have to try and hold back or be cautious with than to push them out there on the field. We'll watch him very closely, and he won't over do it."

Rough outing

Right-hander Pedro Astacio endured his second consecutive shaky spring training performance last night, allowing three runs on four hits.

Astacio, one of five starting pitchers battling for three spots in the rotation, said he threw somewhere between 50 and 55 pitches in two inning against the New York Mets. …
