Nationals send El Duque to Harrisburg

The Nationals today sent Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez to Class AA Harrisburg, officially removing his from the disabled list. Hernandez, whom the Nationals signed roughly one month ago as, had been pitching with the Nationals' Gulf Coast League affiliate in order to get himself into shape.

Hernandez, the half-brother of Nationals starter Livan Hernandez, last pitched in the major leagues in 2007. The Nationals have made him into a reliever.

The Nationals also promoted second baseman Stephen Lombardozzi, a 19th round choice in the 2008 draft, from Class A Potomac to Harrisburg. He hit .293 with one homer for Potomac and, in 107 games, made just six errors at second base.

I can't believe the nats are serious about bringing him in. Why do they feel compelled to change a great bullpen....especially with a washed up 44 year old?? Sometimes I wonder if the management has a brain...
