Today's lineups, Doug Slaten called up
The Nationals purchased the contract of lefthander Doug Slaten from Class AAA Syracuse, replacing Matt Chico with a second lefty and seventh pitcher for their bullpen. Slaten appeared in 11 games last season for the Arizona Diamondbacks, last pitching July 9. Slaten, 30, has a 3.68 career ERA in 80 2/3 innings. This season with Syracuse, Slaten has allowed zero earned runs in 17 innings on 12 hits and one walk.
The Nationals designated Chico for assignment, but apparently Chico will remain on the 40-man roster and not be subject for release. A hazy team release called Chico's designation "an option with more paperwork and time involved." Bottom line, the Nationlas are not going to lose Chico from their organization.
