As expected, the Nationals have made the next set of cuts today, the details of which are coming across in fits and starts. Bryce Harper will not be among them, according to Washington Post beat writer Adam Kilgore.
Most of the names you’ll see below are not unexpected, with the possible of exception of Adam Carr. I write “possible” because of the results — 1-0, 1 SV, 4IP 1H 0R 0BB 2K — fully understanding that decisions are not made solely on stats, but it’s difficult to reconcile the disconnect between the decision and the performance. All the names below are being assigned to Syracuse (Mock & Carr are technically being optioned).
Jonathan Van Every
UPDATE: Reliever Cla Meredith has been released outright.
