Matt Purke is healthy and ready to become a National: "I'm ready. Just give me a uniform and put me out there."

Among the highlights from his conversation with the Washington Times, Purke admitted that he was never 100 percent healthy at any point during his season for Texas Christian University this year said he's been on a throwing program all summer. His stamina, velocity and command have all come back and he's progressed to having thrown seven or eight bullpen sessions of 45-50 pitches in each session.

"Now, I basically have enough stamina to pitch two or three innings in a game," he said.

Lot's of other good stuff in the article.
