WASHINGTON (AP) -Washington Nationals right-hander Jason Bergmann complained of elbow tightness and had an MRI exam that came back negative Thursday, three days after he took a no-hit bid into the eighth inning.
Bergmann (1-3, 2.76 ERA) was listed day to day. His next scheduled start is Saturday against the Baltimore Orioles.
The Nationals already have three pitchers of their opening day rotation on the disabled list: John Patterson, Shawn Hill and Jerome Williams.
In Bergmann's last outing, a 2-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday, he didn't allow a hit until Brian McCann's homer leading off the eighth. Bergmann allowed two hits and struck out a career-high 10 for his first major league win since Sept. 15, 2005. It also was his first win in 15 starts.
He's holding opponents to a .162 batting average, the lowest mark in the majors.
