Nationals News

UPDATE: MLBTradeRumors reports that the Milledge for Morgan trade with the Pirates deal is close to being sealed.

Garrett Mock, optioned to Syracuse after 13 appearances as a National, was named one of two International League players of the week.

Following last night's loss, the Marlins are now 7-0 against the Nationals this year.

The Nationals have signed Jeff Kobernus, the 50th pick in the draft. He's reporting to the Vermont Lake Monsters, and may play as early as this week.

The lineup shift, which put Willie Harris first and bumped everyone else back, may not be a permanent change, according to Acta: "It's just one game, guys. We still have to wait and see."

Everything Else

Two women were kicked out of the Rogers Centre in Toronto for throwing beer at B.J. Upton.

Manny Ramirez, who is eligible to return from his suspension on Friday, has had a less-than-stellar time in the minors, going 1 for 3 in what is expected to be his final rehab game.

Jonathan Papelbon tied the Red Sox record for career saves last night, notching his 132nd save against the Orioles.
