Davey Johnson is concerned with Ross Ohlendorf's stamina, which will likely lead to Tanner Roar taking a rotation spot.
The left-handed starter may not return this season, Davey Johnson says. The right-handed reliever was recalled just before Tuesday's game.
Ohlendorf is expected to make another rehab start later this week, Detwiler is about a week away from baseball activities and Jordan is feeling the wear of this season's workload.
The right-handed reliever will start his rehab assignment on Saturday. The left-handed starter will still rest his back for a full month despite improvement.
Recovering from a herniated disc, Ross Detwiler may not make it back in time to pitch again this season.
The second opinion on the left-hander's back showed he has a pinched nerve and will require an injection.
Ross Detwiler will fly to Los Angeles to visit renowned back surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins.
Davey Johnson is pessimistic about Ross Detwiler's return, but Mike Rizzo plans to hold off before pursuing a potential trade.
The left-handed starter may not be ready to make a rehab start this week nor return to the Nationals as originally expected.
The left-handed hasn't started throwing yet, 11 days ahead of his expected return from the disabled list.
