VIERA, Fla. -- With left-hander Ross Detwiler back in camp, right-hander Chris Young will make two more starts for the Nationals, although he has an opt-out clause on March 24, which is the day before the second start.
As of now, there is a no chance Young will be on the 25-man roster. Barring injury, Washington's rotation is set and Young is not going to be part of the bullpen.
"I like him. I think he is good pitcher," manager Davey Johnson said. "He throws the ball well. He is not a candidate to pitch in my 'pen. I think everybody looks at him as a starter."
