Nationals optioned RHP Jefry Rodriguez to Double-A Harrisburg.

Rodriguez was up as the 26th man during Saturday's doubleheader but didn't make an appearance. He'll rejoin Harrisburg's rotation.
May 20 - 10:32 AM

Nationals designated OF Moises Sierra for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Juan Soto. Sierra has hit just .167/.217/.204 over 27 games for the Nats this season.
May 20 - 10:31 AM

Nationals purchased the contract of OF Juan Soto from Double-A Harrisburg.

It's a bold move, as Soto will be the youngest player in the majors at 19 and has just 512 plate appearances as a pro, with nearly all of them coming in the lower minors. However, there's no doubting his talent, and he's posted a ridiculous .362/.462/.757 batting line with 14 home runs and 52 RBI across 39 games over his three stops this season. Soto will be the Nats' regular left fielder with Adam Eaton (ankle) slated to be out a while longer.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said Sunday that Johan Camargo will be the team's everyday third baseman following the release of Jose Bautista.

Camargo hasn't hit much this year after a nice rookie season, although he has picked it up lately in reaching base seven times over his last four games. There's not much upside here for fantasy purposes, but Camargo's multi-position eligibility could make him useful in deeper leagues. Top prospect Austin Riley is just a step away at Triple-A Gwinnett and could get a shot if Camargo scuffles.
May 20 - 10:21 AM

Braves released 3B/OF Jose Bautista.

It's an experiment that just never worked out, as Bautista unsurprisingly struggled defensively at third base and didn't do nearly enough with the bat (.143/.250/.343) to make up for it. Johan Camargo will take over as the everyday third baseman for the Braves. This could be the end of the line for the 37-year-old Bautista.

Matt Duffy (hamstring) didn't get a hit but walked twice in his return to action Saturday.

Duffy hadn't played since Tuesday because of a tight right hamstring. Hamstring ailments can often be aggravated, so we'll see if it's truly behind him.
May 20 - 8:23 AM

Francisco Cervelli (finger) went 0-for-4 at dish in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Cervelli sat out Friday after jamming a finger when he dove back into a base Thursday. It shouldn't be an issue moving forward.
May 20 - 8:20 AM

Jean Segura posted a triple, a solo home run and three RBI across four at-bats in Saturday's victory against the Tigers.

Segura is on fire lately, collecting two or more hits in five of his past seven outings. He also has multi-hit efforts in nine of his 17 outings in the month of May, raising his average from .298 to .316 in the process. He'll look to keep it going Sunday against LHP Francisco Liriano. He has been creaming southpaws to the tune of a .373 average (22-for-59) with five doubles, a triple and an .895 OPS.
