Worth noting

• Nationals right-hander Chien-Ming Wang, who is pitching for Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, will get one more start with the Chiefs before he returns the Major Leagues. The team has not decided what Wang's role will be once he is activated from the disabled list. Currently, Ross Detwiler is the fifth starter and is having a solid season. In five starts entering play Wednesday, Detwiler is 3-1 with a 1.59 ERA.

• Manager Davey Johnson is hoping that relievers Drew Storen and Brad Lidge are on rehab assignments by the end of May. Storen had a bone chip removed from his elbow, while Lidge is on the disabled list because of a sports hernia.
