Ross Ohlendorf to the DL

Updated: August 4, 2013

The Washington Nationals have placed P Ross Ohlendorf on the disabled list.   Ohlendorf was sore after his last quality start and threw just 11 pitches in his last outing when he relieved Gio Gonzalez.

Ohlendorf was removed after 11 pitches because of continued concerns about the velocity of his witches.  He was placed on the 15 day DL.  Replacing Ohlendorf is veteran reliever Xavier Cedeno.  Cedeno has hour up decent numbers at AAA Syracuse.  In 30 relief appearances, he is 1-0 with 3 saves and a 1.40 ERA.  The veteran reliever was acquired off waivers from Houston.
