Vet Expects to Get Back to the Major Leagues with
a Start Against Nationals Next Week

Dan Patrick: "Your first start is going to be when next week?" John Smoltz: "Well, looks like sometime next week, either Tuesday or Wednesday, if everything goes the way it continues to go... there's no pinpoint hard date, but that's what it looks like. ... I think it's going to be Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, yeah. It hinges on a lot of variables that we are constantly looking at. I gotta pitch either tomorrow or Thursday in one more rehab start." --6.16.09, The Dan Patrick radio show
