Detwiler OK after problems with mound; Pudge hits off tee

Left-hander Ross Detwiler hurt his right ankle during the Nationals’ 11-1 loss to the Braves on Friday night. However, the injury is not considered serious, according to manager Davey Johnson.

Detwiler hurt the ankle after slipping on the mound twice in the sixth inning. After striking out Alex Gonzalez to end the inning, Detwiler was seen limping into the dugout.

“He kind of twisted his ankle a little bit. His ankle went into [the landing spot], but he is fine. He will be all right,” Johnson said.

* Catcher Ivan Rodriguez, on the disabled list because of a strained right oblique, took around 50 swings off a tee without any problems on Friday.

“I didn’t swing hard, but everything is OK. Everything is good, so far,” he said.

Rodriguez is planning to hit off the tee again on Saturday.

Detwiler needs to partake in a serious, extremely rigorous workout with a private trainer in the off-season, including weight lifting and yoga. The boy’s just plain wound too tight.
