Milledge to rest sore left toe
Dukes to miss a few more games with right hamstring strain

"Everything is good," he said before Monday's loss to the Mets. "The doctor said it would take a couple of days for the pain to completely go away. I'm ready to go."
Milledge played Sunday against the Orioles, going 0-for-3. He is hitting .333 this spring.
Milledge's outfield mate, Elijah Dukes, was supposed to be in the starting lineup against the Mets, but he is still suffering from a strained right hamstring, which he hurt against the Indians last Friday.
Manager Manny Acta said Dukes is expected to miss a couple of more games.
In the meantime, Ryan Zimmerman played his first game since last Tuesday and went 2-for-4 with an RBI against New York. He had missed almost a week of action because of a tight right hip flexor.
