Gagnon will pick up a start Monday against the Nationals, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Gagnon will step in as a replacement in the rotation for Wilmer Font, but both pitchers will likely find themselves in the bullpen in short order with Jason Vargas (hamstring) expected to return from the 10-day injured list later in the week. While Gagnon made three starts at Triple-A Syracuse earlier this season, he hasn't thrown more than 26 pitches in any outing since April 23 and is thus expected to face an unspecified restriction Monday.
