The Nationals today acquired Matt Thornton from the Yankees. I’m not yet sure what this means for Jerry Blevins. Thornton is a big guy, 6’6″, with good numbers this year. The team has not yet said who they will move to make room on the 25-man roster, but Blake Treinin is my guess. They can return him to Syracuse. I will watch the 6:30pm pre-game show tonight to hopefully get more details.
