• Like Harper, Ross Ohlendorf is back in Washington as he rehabs an injury. The pitcher has been sidelined for the entire season with a back injury. He struggled in a rehab start with Class A Advanced Potomac, but he threw a regularly scheduled bullpen session. The Nationals are still preparing him to be a starting pitcher.
• The Nats sent Taylor Jordan down to Triple-A Syracuse on April 29, but the starting pitcher has been excellent in his two appearances with the Chiefs. He has an 0.82 ERA in 11 innings, and his fastball velocity is back up to 92-94 mph. "I think that helps his other pitches, too," Williams said.
