SEEN AND HEARD AT SHEA STADIUM

Just because Dmitri Young is back on the Nationals’ active roster doesn’t mean Washington is ready to put him on the field. General manager Jim Bowden said the team will continue to try to get the first baseman in better shape before he returns to the field, which might be only as a pinch hitter this year.

“The whole goal with Dmitri isn’t this year,” Bowden said. “It’s to prepare him to be ready to play baseball so he can perform at the level he played last year.”
