Rain in D.C. postponed the Nationals' series opener against the Rockies on Monday. But although no players took the field, there was plenty of roster movement.
Check out the latest news and notes surrounding the Nationals.
With Monday's game being pushed to a Wednesday split doubleheader, it's likely RHP Erick Fedde will start one of Wednesday's games. RHP Stephen Strasburg will still make his scheduled start on Tuesday.
RHP Austin Voth was set to throw on Monday after he was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right biceps tendinitis.
1B Ryan Zimmerman was also placed on the 10-day injured list Monday after his plantar fasciitis in his right foot flared up on Sunday. He was kept out of play for the same injury earlier this season.
The Nationals transferred RHP Justin Miller from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for RHP Michael Blazek, whose contract Washington purchased from Triple-A Fresno on Monday. Blazek's last major-league appearance was in 2017.
RHP Kyle McGowin was optioned to Double-A Harrisburg on Monday. He'll rejoin the Senators' rotation.
OF Andrew Stevenson was recalled from Triple-A Fresno and will back up all three outfield positions in D.C.
Meanwhile, RHP Max Scherzer threw a full bullpen session on Monday without any problems. He'll likely return to the Nationals' rotation either Thursday (against the Rockies) or Friday (against the Dodgers).
