Ryan Mattheus to visit specialist, will miss two weeks at worst

Mattheus has been pitching with soreness in his foot for about two weeks, he said, and he aggravated the injury Monday afternoon while jogging in the outfield. Mattheus underwent an X-ray Monday evening, which was negative.

Mattheus allowed two hits and a walk but no runs in one inning yesterday. For the season, Mattheus has a 2.25 ERA and 13 strikeouts with seven walks in 20 innings. With Henry Rodriguez no longer the Nationals’ clear-cut closer, Mattheus could be one of the candidates to get the ball in the ninth inning.
