Elijah Dukes to play winter ball

Nationals right fielder Elijah Dukes has decided to play for the Licey Tigers of the Dominican Winter League.

Dukes said he wants to improve his game while he is over there this offseason. The biggest thing is to recognize breaking balls, which has given Dukes problems this year.

In other news, right-hander Josh Wilkie will pitch in the Arizona Fall League this offseason. Entering Saturday’s action, Wilkie has a combined 2.42 ERA for Double A Harrisburg and Triple A Syracuse. 

Wilkie, 25, was signed by the Nationals as a non-drafted free agent on June 14, 2006.
