    The Washington Post reports that Dmitri Young (back) will report to extended spring training Sunday after he "experienced a sudden and dramatic breakthrough for his sprained lower back."

    No timetable has been established yet for Young's return, but this is quite a change given general manager Jim Bowden's comments earlier this week that he was wasn't making any progress.

    Nick Johnson is considered day-to-day with a strained tendon in his right wrist.

    There's usually no such thing as day-to-day with Johnson, but X-rays came back negative following Tuesday's game.

    Nationals activated first baseman Dmitri Young from the disabled list.

    Young returns right as Nick Johnson heads to the DL and will take over as the Nationals' starter at first base. He's a must-grab in NL-only leagues and if healthy could emerge with decent mixed-league value after hitting .320/.378/.491 with 13 homers and 74 RBI in 136 games filling in for Johnson last year.

    Nationals sign three players from DR

    NEW YORK -- The Nationals have agreed to terms on professional contracts with three international prospects from the Dominican Republic -- infielders Elvin Cuello (16), Joseph Cabreja and Alex Romero (18).

    Director of scouting Dana Brown and Ed Durkin, special assistant to the vice president, recently scouted all three players at the Lloma del Sueno complex in San Cristobal, Dominican Republic.

    "These three prospects could develop into impact players," Brown said. "They are strong additions to our Latin American program, as we continue to build our farm system through the Draft and international signings. We are especially excited about Cuello, who projects as a quality, switch-hitting middle infielder."

    The Nationals have had recent success recruiting and signing international prospects, especially from Latin American countries. They have signed eight international free agents this year, seven from the Dominican Republic and one from Venezuela. Those signings include three catchers, three infielders, one outfielder and one pitcher.

    The DSL Nationals went 49-15 en route to the organization's first Dominican Summer League championship last season. Twelve players from that championship team are expected to play with Nationals' affiliates in the United States this year.

    Ryan Zimmerman (shoulder) sat out a third straight game Wednesday and his return timetable remains unclear.

    "It's such a day-to-day thing, you can't ever say," Zimmerman said. "I could show up tomorrow, feel great and play or I could show up for the next four days, not feel good and not play until we get home. So, we'll see. The big thing is just to not reaggravate it, because I've made so much progress. There's no reason to go out there and play when I'm almost back, then take a funny swing and start all over again."

    Ryan Zimmerman sat out his seventh straight game Sunday and is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured left shoulder Monday.

    Zimmerman suffered the injury two weeks ago following a head-first slide and has been considered day-to-day for the past week. "If it doesn't get better, I mean they have to do something," Zimmerman said.

    Perez has tendinitis in left shoulder

    WASHINGTON -- In another injury blow for the Nationals, manager Manny Acta revealed after Tuesday's game that left-handed starter Odalis Perez left the Nationals' 6-1 loss to St. Louis after only three innings because of tendinitis in his left shoulder. Acta said Perez will miss his next start because of the injury, and Acta didn't name a possible replacement starter.

    Perez said Tuesday that he simply couldn't go on after the third inning, and he told Acta he needed to come out of the game. Jesus Colome came on in relief just before the first of two lengthy rain delays.

    "I've been battling, but today, I couldn't hold it," Perez said. The southpaw added that a team doctor confirmed that it was only tendinitis, saying that he felt no discomfort while the doctor was running other tests on the arm and shoulder.

    Acta first revealed the injury, saying it had not bothered Perez to the point where he couldn't pitch until tonight.

    "Maybe three starts ago or something [it bothered him] ... but it wasn't anything serious that night," Acta said.

    Perez and Acta both originally said the lefty would miss his next start. However, Perez backed off that comment later, saying he would see how his shoulder responds to treatment.

    An MRI on Triple-A Columbus' Matt Chico revealed loose bone fragments in his throwing elbow.

    Chico will be examined by Nationals' team doctors this weekend and will likely require surgery.

    Dmitri Young has just one at-bat since last Tuesday because of what the Nationals are calling a viral sickness.

    Manager Manny Acta said Sunday that Young is expected to switch medications in an effort to get healthy. With Young out Aaron Boone has started five straight games at first base, with Kory Casto replacing him at third base.

    The Washington Post reports that the Nationals are expected to call up Garrett Mock from Triple-A to make a spot start Saturday.

    Mock struggled in his big league debut on June 8 against the Giants, but has pitched well at Triple-A and tossed 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball in his last outing.

    Mock was sent down to Class AAA Columbus following the game (Saturday), along with Brian Sanches, who gave up four runs in just a third of the seventh inning. The Nats called up infielder Pete Orr, who was batting .267 with 14 doubles and 30 RBI for Columbus, and right-hander Steven Shell, who posted a 1.73 ERA in 18 relief outings but a 4.09 ERA in four starts. Manny Acta said the Nationals will use Shell in middle-relief.

    A brit more info on the guys coming in from AAA:

    Nationals purchased the contract of infielder Pete Orr from Triple-A Columbus.

    Orr replaces Ryan Langerhans as the Nationals' 25th man after hitting .267/.324/.410 for Columbus. He can't do much harm in that role, but manager Manny Acta shouldn't ever start looking for ways to get him into the lineup.
    Nationals purchased the contract of RHP Steven Shell from Triple-A Columbus.

    Shell, a longtime Angels prospect, will be making his major league debut at age 25. He was mediocre as a starter at Columbus early on, but he had a 1.78 ERA in 36 1/3 innings as a reliever. This is the kind of pitcher the last-place Nationals should be trying in middle relief.

    Chris Marrero will need surgery to repair the broken fibula he suffered sliding into home on Wednesday and will miss the rest of the season.

    He'll also need to repair ligaments in his ankle. The 19-year-old had gotten off to a slow start, but was hitting .352 in the 14 games before he was hurt. He'll finish the season hitting .250 with 11 homers and 38 RBI in 70 games. GM Jim Bowden doesn't think it will be a setback to Marrero's long-term development, but it will obviously delay his debut with the Nats.

    According to the Washington Post, a CT scan on John Lannan's bruised right wrist revealed no serious injury.

    Lannan was hit on the wrist by a line drive Sunday, but looks likely to make his next scheduled start Saturday against the Orioles.
