Broadcast was on last night but missed the beginning. Did not realize Joel Hanrahan was the pitching coach there. Maybe he can help.

Reliever Matt Cronin has pitched on 14 dates for the Class AA Harrisburg Senators this spring. The whole list — April 9, April 14, April 17, April 20, April 24, April 29, May 1, May 5, May 8, May 12, May 15, May 18, May 21 and May 22 — tells a story on its own. Notice the consistent gaps until Cronin went back-to-back for the first time this past weekend? Or how, early on, coaches gave three or four days of rest to a lefty sidelined for parts of 2021 with shoulder issues?

Here’s the careful plan for a pitcher who entered Thursday with a 0.00 ERA in 16⅓ innings.
...
Once in a while, Cronin has mixed in what pitching coordinator Sam Narron called a split-finger change-up. Otherwise, he has flat-out dominated with high heaters and a sharp breaking ball. His velocity is in the low-to-mid 90s, ticking back to normal. Opposing hitters have a batting average/on-base percentage/slugging percentage slash line of .096/.203/.096. That identical batting and slugging percentage means Cronin has only allowed singles — and only five of them — while striking out 22 and walking seven.

0.00 ERA, 16.1 IP.

I know he is the butt of a joke at this point among Nationals fans, but it's very cool that he is still grinding and trying to get out there through all of his injuries.

Still only 22, I hope for his sake he is able to get through a dozen starts this summer and build up

agreed. Just to see him back on the mound is encouraging. Let's give him, like Strasburg, 3 or 4 starts to see where they are.

Guess who finally pitched last night?

It wasn’t pretty:  2+ IP, 4H, 4R, 4ER, 4BB, 1K, WP, 52 pitches, 26 strikes.

Team is not making any long term decisions on any player until the sale is completed.  So all this discussion is pointless for now.
