Alexi Ogando pitched with arm injury before DL stint
"He finally told me that when we were talking, and I said, ‘You can’t do that’," Washington said. "He’s got a different workload this year. When you are a reliever and you only have to pitch an inning or so, you can pitch through some soreness, but when you are a starter, it’s a different situation. You can make it worse. It’s something that comes with experience. Now that he has the experience of going through this and knowing the situation, hopefully it won’t happen again. Thank God it wasn’t more serious."
Ogando is on the 15-day disabled list with biceps tendinitis.

Ben Revere losing playing time
Despite batting .357 with a .438 on-base percentage in his last 13 games,
Revere has been limited to six starts against left-handed pitchers this season, but only two of the four games he has sat out have been against lefties.
Revere told the Philadelphia Inquirer Saturday that he has been getting time off to work on his swing. Revere, who has just two extra-base hits in 118 at-bats, said he is trying to work on driving the ball.
"We've kind of been talking and going back to my old films from the minor leagues with the Twins and trying to find that power stroke," Revere said. "I know back then I was a 10-triple guy, it was gap-to-gap with everything, and they want me to get back to that and I do too. That’s the stuff I’m working on."

Andrews is famous for performing Tommy John surgery on torn UCLs, though the team has not confirmed that the procedure will be necessary for O'Flaherty.
