Voth (bicep) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday.
Voth was originally slated to start Sunday's contest but was scratched due to arm soreness. That progressed to the point where he needs a stint on the injured list, with Joe Ross tabbed to take the ball in his place. Voth will be first eligible to be activated July 28.
Voth will not be able to make his start Sunday due to shoulder soreness, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Voth was set to take the rotation spot of Max Scherzer, who is also battling a shoulder injury, but he won't be able to take the mound Sunday. Instead, Joe Ross will draw the start against Atlanta.
Voth is dealing with shoulder soreness and may not be able to make his scheduled start Sunday in Atlanta, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
Voth owns a 4.35 ERA in four starts for the Nationals this season. If he's unable to take the mound, Joe Ross is the primary candidate to take his place.
Voth is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Braves.
Voth was recalled from the minors when a fifth member of the rotation was needed Tuesday in Baltimore and turned in his second quality start in four turns with the big club this season. The solid performance will earn him his second start of the week after the Nationals determined that Max Scherzer (shoulder) wouldn't be ready to rejoin the rotation during the team's series in Atlanta. Even if Scherzer makes it back from the injured list next week, Voth could stay with the big club as the No. 5 starter over Erick Fedde, with the performance of both pitchers likely to be the main determinant in which of the two sticks around when the Nats are at full strength.
Voth (1-0) earned the win Tuesday at Baltimore after giving up one run on four hits over six innings. He struck out four, walked one and hit a pair of batters.
Voth was in trouble early after loading the bases in the first inning and giving up a solo homer in the second, but he quickly settled in to deliver six strong innings. The Nationals don't have a scheduled off day until Aug. 1, so the right-hander seems likely to remain in the rotation following Tuesday's performance. He's in line to start Monday versus the Rockies.
