• Chien-Ming Wang threw eight-plus innings for Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, allowing 11 hits and four runs. Wang is allowed to remain on rehab assignment until May 27. He will make at least one more rehab start.

Lidge threw for the first time since his May 1 surgery to repair a sports hernia, making throws from 60 feet on flat ground and also did some jogging. The right-hander said his rehab schedule should have him on target to return in the third week of June.

Storen did some light throwing as well Monday, the first he’s done since his April 11 surgery to remove a bone chip from his right elbow. Storen’s timetable appears to be lengthier than Lidge’s because of the nature of his injury but Johnson said the right-hander “felt great” after throwing and expected some soreness Tuesday.

• Catcher Wilson Ramos, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament Saturday, was scheduled to meet with team doctor Wiemi Douoguih on Monday night to be evaluated and possibly plan his expected surgery.

• The surgeon who operated on Jayson Werth’s left wrist at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Richard Berger, told Werth that having surgery as soon as he did to stabilize the break likely shaved three weeks off his recovery time. Werth still is expected to miss 10-12 weeks.
