WASHINGTON -- It will not be known until Saturday if Nationals left-hander Ross Detwiler will be able to start Tuesday against the Orioles.

Detwiler already missed his scheduled start Monday against the Giants because of a right oblique strain. Detwiler hurt himself last week against the Dodgers in Los Angeles while running the bases on a sacrifice bunt.
