I just found an article saying Skole is targeting mid September to be ready, which should let him play in the AFL. That was from a month ago, so I guess he is still on target.
Skole estimates another month or so working his arm and building strength. Then he hopes another visit to Washington, D.C., to see Nationals medical director Dr. Wiemi Douoguih, might net him clearance to begin hitting again. From there, it's another 2-4 weeks until game action.

The optimist sees Skole returning to form by mid-September, which, of course, will make it too late for a 2013 return to the Senators. But he's aiming for another Arizona Fall League invite or a winter league trip.
