Ripple
As is often the case, the effect of activating someone on the parent club ripples throughout the minors…

WASHINGTON
• Removed 3B Ryan Zimmerman from Potomac roster, activated from 15-Day DL
• Released LHP Niko Spezial*
• Released RHP Andy Santana*
• Released OF Hayden Jennings*
* Per latest BA Transaction post.

SYRACUSE
• 1B-OF Tyler Moore optioned from Washington

HARRISBURG
• LHP Sammy Solis placed on the 7-Day DL

POTOMAC
• UT Mike McQuillan activated from the 7-Day DL

HAGERSTOWN
• OF Narciso Mesa reassigned from Potomac
• RHP Nick Pivetta activated from the 7-Day DL
• RHP Cody Davis activated from the 7-Day DL

AUBURN
• OF Greg Zebrack reassigned from Hagerstown
• RHP Reynaldo Lopez reassigned from Hagerstown
• LHP R.C. Orlan reassigned from Hagerstown

A corresponding move to make room for Moore has not yet been announced; Syracuse is at 25-man limit while Harrisburg is at 24 and could absorb a player reassigned if Washington so chooses.

It’s obviously concerning that Solis, who was hit hard on Memorial Day but did not appear to have diminished velocity, is back on the DL after just three starts total. As perverted as this may sound, we can only hope that it’s just his back (on which he has had surgery and was the reason cited for his previous trip to the DL) and not his left arm that’s bothering him because a bad back can be more readily treated versus a bad shoulder or elbow.

For the folks champing at the bit for promotions, the Nationals will sometimes realign the Low-A and High-A rosters after their All-Star Break (June 16-18) and in between when the Auburn and GCL rosters are set. (Auburn begins play June 13; the GCL on June 21).

As always, if/when further moves related to these become known, this space will be updated.

UPDATE:

Multiple online sources are now reporting that it is indeed elbow soreness that’s sent Sammy Solis to the DL. This, of course, is about as bad as it gets for a pitcher who’s already had one TJ surgery (2012).

  1. I am beginning to wonder if after his surgery Matt Purke may end up the healthy one over Sammy Solis?

  2. Are you going to take a trip to Syracuse to see a top notch AAA club this season?

    • Was hoping to see them on my baseball road trip but the schedule didn’t agree — am hoping to catch Auburn on the road in Ohio.

  3. Ugh, that’s terrible news. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Solis will ever be healthy.

    Hopefully he can catch on with another team (in the American League), and get a cup of coffee like Christian Garcia.

  4. Guys I am hearing that Chris Manno LHP is back with the Nationals, is that true , If so BIG WIN for us
    love that kid when he was with us Did a great Job
