Michael O'Connor (0-0, -.--)
O'Connor, who is replacing the injured John Patterson, was the Nationals' Pitcher of the Year last season after going 10-11 with a 3.54 ERA for Class A Potomac. In 2006, he was in Triple-A New Orleans, pitching four games with a 2.41 ERA. He will be pitching against the Cardinals on three-days' rest.


Sidney Ponson (2-0, 3.31)
Ponson was shaky in his third start of the season on Saturday against Chicago. He allowed six hits and walked four batters over five innings, but only surrendered one run and gave the Cardinals a chance to win. He has only lasted five innings in two of his three starts.
