Latest Davey Johnson Items
At one of the Washington Nationals' minor league affiliates on Monday, right-hander Chien-Ming Wang will take the mound and begin a rehab assignment. Wang, who strained his left hamstring mid-way through spring training, will be allowed 30 days to make rehab starts before the Nationals have to add him to the active roster. They don't anticipate him needing that long.
Nationals pitcher Edwin Jackson may have taken the loss, but in the words of manager Davey Johnson, reliever Tom Gorzelanny "took this one on the shin."

Gio Gonzalez is carving out a niche for himself as the happiest, most relaxed pitcher most of his teammates and coaches have ever seen.

In a Washington Nationals season that is just 11 games old, Steve Lombardozzi spent nine of the first 10 getting antsy.
As the words left his mouth, Ian Desmond didn't expect what he was saying would take on the life it has.
Shadows crept toward Tyler Clippard until finally, a few minutes after 5 p.m., they covered the Washington Nationals' right-hander.
