Because of the weather emergency blitzing Florida, the two players the Nationals have kept in Viera on a rehabilitation program will be transferred today to Columbus, General Manager Jim Bowden said. Elijah Dukes and Alberto González won't yet begin rehab assignments with the Class AAA Clippers, though; they'll just continue to work out. Dukes, who hasn't played since Aug. 2, has a right calf injury and González, out since Aug. 4, has a left hamstring strain.
