Nationals claimed LHP Matt Thornton off waivers from the Yankees.
Thornton was claimed by the Nationals after being placed on revocable waivers and the Yankees simply decided to let him go. The 37-year-old has posted a 2.55 ERA and 20/6 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings this season, mostly in a specialist role. The Nationals will be responsible for the remainder of his contract, which includes a $3.5 million salary for next season. The Yankees could soon call up prospect Jacob Lindgren to take his place in the bullpen. Tue, Aug 5, 2014 02:39:00 PM
