Yesterday, the Nats “sent down” IF Carter Kieboom to make room for LHP Sean Doolittle. “Quotes” because in this surreal season, the move doesn’t have the same meaning.
Ordinarily, it’d mean Kieboom would go back to the minors so he can play every day rather than sit the bench. Instead, he’ll scrimmage and do the glorified instrux ($$) that’s going on in Fredericksburg and elsewhere.
Here’s a rundown of some other moves that have a minor-league and/or prospect connection:
ADDED TO 40-MAN
• RHP Wil Crowe
RECALLED TO DC
• LHP Ben Braymer
PLACED ON I.L. AFTER A “FALL”
• LHP Seth Romero
TRANSFER FROM THE GCL TO THE NYPL FOR SOME REASON
• CF Braian Fernandez
ADDED TO 60-PLAYER POOL
• C Israel Pineda
• 1B Drew Mendoza
• SS Jake Boone signed as an NDFA
As always, feel free to discuss in the comments.
