Worth noting

•  With bench coach Randy Knorr and athletic trainer Lee Kuntz observing, Nationals left-hander Ross Detwiler was taking ground balls in front of the mound on Sunday morning and didn't have any problems. Detwiler missed one start because of a strained oblique. He is expected to start Tuesday against the Orioles.
