Nats reportedly call up RHP Abel de los Santos


Abel de los Santos has thrown 37.1 innings at AA this year with a 2.65 ERA. He has struck out 35 and walked only 7. If that control carries over to the majors he will do just fine. His WHIP (walks + hits / innings pitched) is a nice and sparkly 0.88. In 18 outings going back to May 6, AdlS has only twice allowed a run to score. He has a streak of 15 scoreless innings going at AA right now.
