Olsen to pitch next week against Marlins
Manager Manny Acta announced that left-hander Scott Olsen will be activated from the disabled list before the Nationals play a three-game series against the Marlins. Olsen most likely will start Monday at Dolphin Stadium.
Olsen’s return means one of the young pitchers in the rotation will be sent back to Triple-A Syracuse. Right-hander Craig Stammen, who is schedule to pitch on Monday, is the leading candidate to be sent down. He is 1-3 with a 5.49 ERA.
