Worth noting

• Infielder Micah Owings has missed eight straight games because of a sore left wrist, but he took light swings in the batting cage on Sunday. There is no timetable as to when he will get into a game. According to Johnson, Owings recently had a cortisone shot in the wrist.

• Outfielder Eury Perez practiced with the Nationals on Sunday and then was expected to join Team Dominican Republic for the World Baseball Classic on Monday.
