Martinez added that Strasburg should throw around 35-40 pitches in the simulated game. It sounds like the 32-year-old right-hander is still building up strength in his arm as there's still no timetable for his return. If all goes well on Thursday then he could be in line for another simulated game before having a rehab assignment.
