Alas, there is a flip side to the offseason signings and the reassignments. In the latest transactions post from Baseball America, we learned the following Nats minor-leaguers have been released:
• 2B Dalton Dulin (Auburn)
• RHP Russell Harmening (Auburn)
• RHP Conner Porter (GCL)
• 1B Ryan Ripken (Hagerstown, Auburn)
• RHP Brayan Serrata (Auburn)
These are just from the period of March 18-24; I suspect there will be more but no additional names have appeared on MiLB.com thus far. A reminder, as usual, that for most of these guys this is the end of their days as a professional baseball player.
