Cla Meredith underwent an MRI

By Adam Kilgore

Reliever Cla Meredith, who cut short his bullpen session short yesterday with discomfort in his right elbow, is waiting to receive results from an MRI exam taken yesterday. Meredith, 28, underwent surgery this offseason to remove bone chips from his elbow.

The Nationals signed Meredith to a minor league contract this offseason. While there are not many open spots in the Nationals' deep bullpen, Meredith's past success - he had a 1.07 ERA in 2006, for example - and his unique, side-winding motion makes him a player to watch, if healthy.

"It's always an interesting situation if you can find a spot for that type of guy on the staff," Riggleman said. "There's a lot of right-handed hitters who just don't comfortable hitting against those guys. If somebody like that is dominating in spring training, you got to give them some consideration."

Seems this will enhance the possibility that one of the visa delayed pitchers might have a better chance to make the roster and its likely more arms will falter as the spring rolls on. It seems to be in the Nats pitching DNA, unfortunatley.
