Washington Nationals' left-handed pitcher Ross Detwiler still has not pitched from a mound since being placed on the DL with a disk problem in his back.  Manager Davey Johnson doubts that he will be able to pitch again this season. As reported by Bill Ladson of MLB.com, Detwiler hasn't pitched since July 3.  According to Johnson, he has played catch, but nothing else. This is no timetable as to when Detwiler will be able to throw from a mound. "Nobody has talked about him, so I would imagine the next day or so I'll know more if he has accelerated the program or held back," Johnson said. Detwiler began his career in 2007 and has pitched his entire career with the Nationals.  His best season was in 2012 when he won 10, lost 8 and had an earned run average of 3.40.  In 164 1/3 innings, he allowed 149 hits, 15 home runs, 52 walks, while striking out 105.  This season he has stumbled to a record of 2-7 with a 4.04 earned run average.  He's allowed 92 hits in only 71 1/3 innings. For his career, Detwiler is 11 games under .500 at 18-29, with an earned run average of 3.79.
