Paul Lo Duca and Travis Buck are both trying to make it back from injury

Scout.com -
--C Paul Lo Duca played his second game of a rehab assignment with Class A Potomac (Woodbridge, Va.) on Wednesday night, and the Nationals may decide to activate the veteran catcher off the disabled list. Lo Duca, out since April 13 with a bruised right hand, is a combined 0-for-5 with two walks for Potomac. "We'll ... just keep evaluating until he's ready," GM Jim Bowden said. "But certainly his bat's missed. He's a .280 to .300 hitter who would help our offense."

Travis Buck (shin splints) said he did "everything" before Wednesday's game and felt fine. "Everything" included running, hitting, throwing and fielding grounders. He is likely to go on a rehab assignment in the next few days and is likely to spend at least five or six days at Triple-A Sacramento.
