Werth activated, Rendon recalled as Nationals shake up roster

| | | |

With their record sitting at a disappointing 28-29, the Nationals decided to shake up their roster on Tuesday. Here’s the list of moves:

Outfielder Jayson Werth activated off DL.Top prospect Anthony Rendon called up from Triple-A.Left-hander Ian Krol called up from Double-A.Second baseman placed on 15-day DL.Right-hander designated for assignment and placed on waivers.Left-hartz at the end of this season.The young Germany attacker is being tracked by the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.Bosz told AD: “In Germany they see him as a child prodigy. He is from Aachen, has been playing here nder released.

Werth, 34, missed a month with a hamstring problem. Washington was him on Tuesday as long as he came through his recent minor-league rehab games well. In 27 games before the injury, he hit .260/.308/.400 with four home runs and two stolen bases. Werth will give the team some much-needed outfield depth with Bryce Harper on the DL.

Rendon, 22, went 6 for 25 (.240) in eight games with the Nats earlier this season. He’s hit .307/.452/.575 with six homers in 36 minor-league games this year, all but three at Double-A. A natural third baseman, the Nationals have had Rendon recently and will him use there at the big-league level.

Espinosa, 26, has hit a miserable .158/.193/.272 with three home runs this season, though he has been . He also has been battling shoulder problems, so he’ll finally get a chance to get healthy before returning to the team at full strength. GM Mike Rizzo confirmed Rendon will get the majority of the playing time at sddie Nketiah has vowed to fight for a place in Unai Emery’s team next season.The striker spent last season playing behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.Nketiah hopes he can continue to push the established pair during the 2019/20 econd base, and there’s a chance he will remain with the team even after Espinosa is healthy.

The hard-throwing Rodriguez was part of the trade that sent Josh Willingham to the Athletics in December 2010. He’s pitched to a 5.13 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 47 1/3 innings these last two years after being a reliable setup man in 2010. Given the 26-year-old’s triple-digit fastball, he’ll likely get claimed off waivers in the coming days.

Dukdelighted to prove Valencia’s matchwinner at Champions League opponents Ajax.Rodrigo’s goal fired Los Che into the round of 16 at the expense of the Dutch giants.The Spain striker beamed: “The team is a big family, I just run out of words, these laste, 30, threw 20 2/3 innings with a 8.71 ERA and 1.89 WHIP out of Washington’s bullpen this year. He was the team’s only left-hander until Fernando Abad was recalled last month. Duke has gone 50-75 with a 4.60 ERA in parts of nine big-league seasons.

Krol, 22, was acquired from the Athletics as part of the three-team Mike Morse/John Jaso trade with the Mariners this offseason. He moved to the bullpen full-time this season and owns a 0.69 ERA and 0.81 WHIP in 26 innings for the team’s Double-A affiliate before being called. Krol has never been in the big leagues.

CBSSpots.com’s Danny Knobler hears the Nationals are leaning towards placing right-hander on the DL due to his lat problem, though he will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday before a decision is made. Catcher could miss another six weeks with his hamstring injury.

president and CEO Larry Lucchino expressed optimism Monday about the status of starting pitcher , who left his start Saturday against the Blue Jays with a biceps injury.

“My information is incomplete, but my understanding of the MRI is that he had a mid-biceps strain, no structural damage,” Lucchino . “If you watched it you couldn’t help but feel really sad and sorry for John Lackey — who, by the way, is a very good guy. I know the public perception of him may be different than that, but he is a great teammate. His teammates really care about him. You saw evidence of that yesterday in the way they reacted to his injury. So, we’re going to have to wait and see. I think he’s certainly going to miss a start or two, I’m told. Let’s hope it’s not much more than that.”
