MLB Injury News:
Despite original plans for him to do so, the Washington Nationals are not likely to have Ross Detwiler make a minor league rehab start this week. The 27-year old lefty has been on the disabled list since the beginning of July. He is battling stiffness in his back. Unfortunately, his progress has gone slower than anticipated and the Nationals will hold off on his rehab start.
James Wagner of the Washington Post says there have been no known setbacks in Detwiler's rehab. He simply doesn't appear to be ready for a rehab start. The team had expected Detwiler back on July 23rd, but that does not look like it will happen anymore. Taylor Jordan will likely remain in the rotation if Detwiler can't make a rehab start this week. The team would need Detwiler to do so if he is going to get a start next week at all.
With Detwiler's strained lower back, the Nationals do not want to push him if he is not ready. They can ill-afford a second half filled with as many injuries as they had in the first half. Detwiler will be an important part of any success the club has going forward, so caution makes the most sense here.
Prior to his injury, Detwiler was 2-7 with a 4.04 ERA. However, he has proven in the past to be better than that. When healthy, he should perform much better. Last season, Detwiler was 10-8 with a 3.40 ERA. He put up a 3.00 ERA in 2011.

And so, Bryce Harper put on a good show in his first MLB HR Derby...but Yoenis Cespedes was even better in his. Cespedes wins 2013 HR Derby over Harper. Good show.
Still, Cespedes' hair didn't hold a candle to Harper's.

Bryce Harper may have spent Monday night smashing baseballs into the stands at Citi Field but his brother Bryan was equally impressive with his mustache. Bryce Harper qualified for the finals with his father throwing baseballs to him while his brother has become an overnight TV sensation. Better mustache: Bryce Harper's brother, or Rollie Fingers? #HRDerby pic.twitter.com/jRgDUYqLU8...

He’s the second youngest player to ever enter the Home Run Derby (Ken Griffey did it in 1990, similarly at age 20). Here’s his first round, totaling eight home runs.
I have no idea what happened in the Yankiverse yesterday. None. Maybe Cashman stole Bryce Harper from the Nationals, or A-Rod has been promoted to Columbus. It's like being in outer space. I'm cut off. The Duke showed up last night, a day ahead of schedule. He came early because the Redsocks are in first. Smug SOB. Wore a brand new Redsock hat. I'm talking brand new....
Oakland A’s outfielder Yoenis Cespedes hit nine home runs in the final round to beat Washington’s Bryce Harper to win the 2013 Home Run Derby from Citi Field in New York. Cespedes’ final home run was a 455 foot shot to centerfield in which he capped off with a pretty sweet looking bat flip. [...]
