Chris Young will pitch for the Nationals on Monday night in Kissimmee and then make his decision on whether to opt out of his minor league contract with the organization. Young is looking for a major league deal with another team but may stay with the Nationals if he cannot get one. … Henry Rodriguez is dealing with a sore right elbow, manager Davey Johnson said. Rodriguez will be re-evaluated Monday and may throw a bullpen session Tuesday. … The Nationals got back both of the players taken from them in the major league portion of the Rule 5 draft, receiving infielder Jeff Kobernus from the Tigers on Saturday and getting left-hander Danny Rosenbaum back from the Rockies on Sunday. … The Nationals outrighted Carlos Rivero to Triple-A Syracuse, meaning the infielder cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. Rivero, who is now removed from the 40-man roster, will stay in major league camp with the Nationals for the time being. … Right-hander Christian Garcia was placed on the disabled list, retroactive to March 22, with a partially torn tendon in his right forearm.
