We interrupt your Boxing Day celebration to bring you another transaction update, courtesy of BA and MiLB:
• RHP Gabriel Arias – Did not pitch in 2016. Unable to confirm whether he was in Dr. Andrew’s waiting room when the Nats were stopped by for their monthly meeting.
• Player-Coaches Devin Ivany & Andruth Ramirez – Presumably both will return to Harrisburg and Potomac, respectively.
• C-1B Pat Leyland – As noted in the comments, the son of manager Jim Leyland, and continuing the Nats’ fetish for legacy picks. Also did not play in 2016, though he was signed and released by the Reds last spring.
• RHP Mario Sanchez – The other cleat has dropped on the Jimmy Cordero trade with Philadelphia.
