His wRC+ of 42 is the seventh lowest among qualified hitters (Barmes is third lowest with 16) so he’s been a detriment thus far. He’s even been caught stealing 4 times with only 3 SB’s.

I’m fine with letting him figure stuff out in AAA. Hope to see him back up soon.

Not the first guy to go down after horrendously slumping. I think he’ll be back, stronger than ever.

arm because of Lincoln’s spot start on Monday, plus the bullpen pitched
4+ innings yesterday when Correia couldn’t make it out of the 4th inning.

Probably because Huntington paid tons of cash for them and doesn’t like to admit his mistakes. However, Huntington’s beloved BABIP stat suggests that Barajas and Barmes are unlucky, just like it did with Akinori Iwamura a couple years ago…

Calling up an OF replacement should be no problem, but the Nats are almost as weak-hitting as the Pirates. Today’s 5-9 lineup might have Bedard as the top hitter of that group[.
