Nats not worried about Coffey's recent woes
LOS ANGELES -- Nationals manager Davey Johnson said he is not concerned about reliever Todd Coffey even though he has allowed 13 runs in his last 17 innings since June 1.

Johnson believes Coffey is throwing the ball well but has left a few balls up in the strike zone. Johnson said that Coffey is not being hit hard.

"It's not like the balls were scalded," Johnson said. "They just found the grass."
