Reliever Bisenius opts for free agency
Right-handed pitcher Joe Bisenius just became a strong candidate for Most Random National. The 28-year-old reliever, who was a somewhat surprising September call-up by the Nationals in 2010, was placed on outright waivers and opted for free agency over a minor-league assignment with the Nationals.
Bisenius, whom the Nationals signed to a minor-league contract in May, made just five appearances in the majors in September, giving up six hits, six walks and five earned runs in 4 2/3 innings, for an ERA of 9.64. It was his second stint in the majors, following the two appearances he made for the Phillies in 2007.
He does, however, possess a fastball that gets as high as 97 mph, and in this post Adam Kilgore called him perhaps "the most intriguing player to watch over the Nationals' final 20 games." Well, maybe not.
