The Washington Nationals announced just before the start of tonight's game that they had acquired right-handed hitting Cincinnati Reds' outfielder Jonny Gomes, 30, in a deal that sends 26-year-old OF/1B Bill Rhinehart and 22-year-old left-hander Chris Manno to the Reds.

Rhinehart, is an '07 11th Round pick who has 17 doubles and 21 HR's with a .283/.376/.587 slash in 89 games this season at Double-A Harrisburg and a .261/.331/.458 career slash in the Nats' system. 22-year-old left-hander Chris Manno is a 6'3'' left-handed reliever out of Brooklyn, NY, who saved 12 games and struck out 69 in 43.1 IP this season, who was drafted by the Nats twice and signed the second time around in 2010. 

Gomes, a 9-year MLB vet, is hitting .211 with eight doubles, 11 HR's,  a .336 OBP and .399 SLG in 77 games and 265 at bats in 2011, his third season in Cincinnati, where he signed as a free agent in 2009 after six seasons with the Tampa Bay Rays that drafted him in the 18th Round of the '01 Draft.
