    After claiming Michael Morse off waivers on Thursday, the Orioles spent the next 24 hours completing the trade with Seattle. Davey Johnson had actually heard from bench coach Randy Knorr during the game Thursday night it was going to fall through.

    Davey Johnson had to leave Friday night’s game in the fourth inning after feeling lightheaded following a bout of dehydration earlier in the day, but the Nationals manager insisted he’s fine. “I’ll survive,” the 70-year-old skipper said as he departed the Nationals clubhouse only a few minutes after his team lost 3-2 to the Mets.…

    Ross Ohlendorf it is. Davey Johnson confirmed before Friday’s game the veteran right-hander will indeed start for the Nationals on Sunday night, and ruled out Stephen Strasburg’s availability to pitch a day early. Strasburg threw a bullpen session on Friday and is fine after feeling tightness in his back in his previous start. Tanner Roark…

    In a season that has seen inconsistency up and down the Nationals’ roster, Tyler Clippard has been as steady and reliable as ever. He’s appeared in more games than any other pitcher on the Nats’ staff (61) and holds its lowest ERA (1.94). Relief pitching is usually among the most volatile roles in sports. Success…

    Looking to pull a longman out of his bullpen to make a start on Sunday, Davey Johnson needed Gio Gonzalez to pitch deep into Thursday’s game against the Marlins.

    Though Stephen Strasburg threw just 22 pitches in his start on Wednesday night, Davey Johnson does not expect to adjust his rotation to let the right-hander pitch on Sunday. Johnson said things can still change, but at this point he is looking at Ross Ohlendorf as the likely choice to face the New York Mets.…

    MLB: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

    Despite initial hopes Ross Detwiler would be able to recover from his strained back to pitch again for the Nationals in September, the left-hander is unlikely to make it back before season’s end.
