Nationals activate RHP Ohlendorf from DL for start
Ohlendorf (2-0), who had been on the disabled list since Aug. 1 because of shoulder inflammation, has been used primarily in long relief this season. His start on Wednesday is his third of the season and seventh of his career.
On Tuesday, the Nationals optioned left-hander Ian Krol to Triple-A Syracuse to make room on the roster for Ohlendorf.
Washington manager Davey Johnson said he expected Ohlendorf to move into the fifth spot in the Nationals rotation, taking the place of right-hander Taylor Jordan who was placed on the disabled list last week.
