Worth noting

• Wang will be evaluated after Thursday's sim game with Desmond, and the right-hander will "more than likely" restart his Minor League rehab assignment after that. Wang exited his last rehab assignment Wednesday, complaining of right hip soreness after a particularly rough outing Tuesday night.

• By picking up his 15th victory in Monday night's 14-2 rout of the Giants, Gio Gonzalez tied Livan Hernandez for the most single-season wins in Nationals history. Hernandez went 15-10 in 2005.

• Johnson drew some laughs from the small crowd of reporters in the visiting clubhouse at AT&T Park on Tuesday afternoon when asked whether Morse was scheduled for an MRI or X-ray for his jammed thumb.

"I'd hate to be paying our MRI bill," Johnson joked, making light of his club's slew of injuries this year. "It seems like every time we turn around, somebody's getting one."
