    JUPITER, Fla. — The Nationals have voided last week’s option of Ross Ohlendorf to Class AAA Syracuse and placed the right-hander on the 60-day disabled list with a right lumbar strain, a move that opened up a spot on the 40-man roster for newly acquired infielder Kevin Frandsen. Ohlendorf had been demoted to the minors…

    VIERA, Fla. — The Nationals made six more cuts before this afternoon’s game against the Tigers, bringing even more clarity to the few remaining roster battles over the final week of spring training. Right-handers Ross Ohlendorf and Christian Garcia and catcher Jhonatan Solano were optioned to Class AAA Syracuse, with fellow reliever Manny Delcarmen and…

    AP

    VIERA, Fla. — Though the Nationals have no major injuries throwing a wrench into the early days of spring training, two pitchers are dealing with minor issues that have altered their workout regimens: Tyler Clippard and Ross Ohlendorf. Clippard has not fully participated in drills the last two days after tweaking his back. The reliever…

    Strasburg: 'I think our lineup's better'

    The Washington Nationals have released a list of players they expect to attend Jan. 25′s NatsFest at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. The appearances are subject to change, but for now it appears Stephen Strasburg will be there after missing the event in 2013. Bryce Harper will be in attendance as well, along…

  7. Sorting out bullpen roles

    One of the toughest tasks for any first-time manager is bullpen usage, and that figures to be among the more intriguing aspects of Matt Williams’ inaugural season as skipper of the Nationals. Williams inherits a Washington bullpen loaded at the back end with three right-handers who have all enjoyed success as a closer in the…

  8. Ohlendorf signs 1-year deal, 8 others tendered

    USA Today Sports Images

    The Nationals re-signed right-hander Ross Ohlendorf late Monday night and tendered contracts to their eight other arbitration-eligible players, choosing to keep all for 2014. All major-league clubs had until 11:59 p.m. EST to tender contracts to players not yet signed for next season, and many teams elected to non-tender players and make them free agents.…

    The Thanksgiving holiday weekend has come and gone, the Winter Meetings begin one week from today and the Hot Stove League (you would assume) is about to kick into high gear for the Nationals, who have been awfully quiet to date. Perhaps they will make some news before the end of the day, though, with…

  11. One loss makes Nats’ challenge even tougher

    USA Today Sports Images

    Any other time this season, under any other circumstance, the Nationals would have been perfectly satisfied to take two of three games from the Braves. Not right now. Not under these circumstances. “It’s just not enough,” manager Davey Johnson said. “We just can’t afford to lose. It’s that simple.” The Nationals’ 5-2 loss to Atlanta…

    Game in a nutshell: After taking both ends of Tuesday’s doubleheader, the Nationals found themselves in position to go for a rare (but much-needed) series sweep of the Braves. They put themselves in position to pull it off, taking a 2-0 lead in a wild bottom of the fifth that saw Jayson Werth draw a…

    Here’s a fortuitous position the Nationals find themselves in: After taking both games of yesterday’s doubleheader, they now have a chance to sweep the Braves in this three-game series. Who’d have thunk that 48 hours ago? To pull it off, the Nats will need a strong outing from Ross Ohlendorf, making one final start so…

  14. Detwiler, Strasburg working their way back

    Detwiler dominates again

    With all the winning the Nats have been doing lately, it’s easy to forget they still aren’t full strength. Ross Detwiler, their fifth starter, has been on the disabled list since July 7 with a lower back strain and now Stephen Strasburg, their ace, is on the mend. Both starters are working their way back…

    To us reporters, it was quite a surprise seeing Ross Ohlendorf’s name on the Nationals lineup card in the clubhouse on Friday afternoon. Normally if there is something unexpected in the Nats’ lineup, it’s just a position player getting the day off. But this time it was Stephen Strasburg’s name that was missing and it…

    These days just about everything is going the Nationals’ way. Returning home for a ten game homestand, the Nats pulled Stephen Strasburg from his start in a surprise move because of forearm soreness. In came Ross Ohlendorf who had been a disaster since July, and off he went with a 31-pitch inning that saw an…

    Game in a nutshell: Ross Ohlendorf was thrown in to start after Stephen Strasburg was a late scratch on Friday night, and the veteran delivered. He threw 31 pitches in the first inning and allowed an early run, but settled in and worked five innings with the help of a large lead provided by his…

  18. Strasburg scratched with forearm tightness

    Sep 13, 2013, 5:39 PM EDT

    No DL yet for Strasburg

    [Updated 6:23 p.m.] Though they’ve won eight of their last nine games, not all is well for the Nats as they return home on Friday. Stephen Strasburg was scratched before his expected start against the Philadelphia Phillies due to forearm tightness. The Nats’ ace felt the injury during a bullpen session on Thursday in New…

    PHILADELPHIA — Tanner Roark will make his first big-league start Saturday night, selected by Nationals manager Davey Johnson to pitch against the Marlins in place of veteran Ross Ohlendorf, who will move to the bullpen. Johnson had said for a couple of weeks he wanted to give Roark a chance to start at least a…

    Game in a nutshell: Ross Ohlendorf got the Nationals off to a poor start against the Mets with three runs allowed through the first three innings. It seemed everything he tossed found the barrel of a bat as even pitcher Jonathon Niese got in on the fun. One of the hits allowed included a solo…

    After losing the first two of this weekend series with the New York Mets, the Nationals will send Ross Ohlendorf to the mound looking to avoid the sweep. They sit 7 1/2 games out of the NL Wild Card with 27 games remaining on their schedule, this the first of their final month of the…

  22. Ohlendorf to start Sunday, Roark will get his shot

    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…

    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: Miami Marlins at Washington Nationals

    The Nationals are not keeping one eye on the out-of-town scoreboard as they stand at the plate, in the field or on the mound. They aren’t huddled around the clubhouse TVs watching pennant race games and living and dying with each momentum swing. Ask anybody on the roster how many games back they are at…
