Dmitri back on the 40-man roster

With outfielder Wily Pena on waivers, the Nationals have decided to place first baseman Dmitri Young back on the 40-man roster.

Assistant general manager Mike Rizzo said that Young earned the spot because he can still hit and came to camp in shape. Young was taken off the 40-man roster during the offseason because the team needed to protect players from the Rule 5 Draft. 

Young will most likely start the season in the Minor Leagues because he is not in game shape. He has not played in an exhibition game since early March because of back problems.

There will be more on Young on Nationals.com.
