Nationals reassigned LHP Matt Purke to minor league camp.
Purke, a third-round pick of the Nationals in 2011, had Tommy John surgery last May and will likely be sidelined until around midseason. The 24-year-old is no longer on the Nationals' 40-man roster. He owns a 5.00 ERA over 29 starts in pro ball. Mar 10 - 4:02 PM
