The surgery will repair bone chips in his left elbow. The 25-year-old southpaw posted a 3.86 ERA over seven appearances with the Nats in April and leaves behind a 5.03 ERA in 16 games with Triple-A Syracuse.

Nationals claimed LHP Jesse English off waivers from the Giants.

English was designated for assignment by San Francisco last week after posting a 7-7 record and 4.20 ERA at Double-A Connecticut. The 24-year-old may need to move to the bullpen in order to crack the major leagues.

Giants designated LHP Jesse English for assignment.

English was 7-7 with a 4.20 ERA at Double-A Connecticut. The 24-year-old's 40-man roster spot became expandable when the Giants purchased the contracts of two prospects today, including Buster Posey.

Jesse English struck out nine in three hitless innings of relief for short-season Single-A Salem-Keiser on Saturday.

English looked like one of the Giants' better prospects for a time after being drafted out of high school in 2002, but he's battled arm problems through the years and is at a lower level of the minors now than he was as a 19-year-old in 2004. Still, he does have to be taken seriously again with a 41/4 K/BB ratio and a .157 average against in 23 2/3 innings as a reliever for the Volcanoes. He might have a future.
