The wait is almost over. Washington Nationals’ players and fans have spent the offseason reflecting on a disappointing 2013 season, and hoping for better things to come. Talent wise, it is clear that the Nationals have the players necessary to have a successful season. However, to reach their collective goals, Washington must play the game unselfishly and avoid injuries.
The Washington Nationals placed left-handed pitcher Ross Detwiler on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 4, on Sunday with a lower back strain.
Detwiler, originally projected to start Monday's series opener at Philadelphia, is 2-7 with a 4.04 ERA in 13 starts. He experienced discomfort in his back when he threw his bullpen session Saturday.

Phillies 6, Nationals 3: Loss, Detwiler. Nats lose to Phillies; Braves walk-off Marlins. Magic number stuck at five; NL East lead down to four.
Starting pitcher Ross Detwiler struggled throughout his 4 2/3-inning start against the Diamondbacks on
Sunday. He gave up five runs on three hits and never really had good command in the 7-4 loss. The defeat ended Washington's eight-game winning streak, but what happened after the loss showed how
