Royals signed LHP Atahualpa Severino to a minor league contract.

Severino had a 2.81 ERA over 46 relief appearances with the Nationals' Triple-A affiliate this season, despite an underwhelming 43/36 K/BB ratio over 48 innings. The 28-year-old southpaw figures to function as minor league depth in 2013.

Nationals sent LHP Atahualpa Severino outright to Triple-A Syracuse.

Severino had been designated for assignment in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Cesar Izturis. He'll return to a 2.72 ERA over 40 games at Syracuse this season.

Nationals designated LHP Atahualpa Severino for assignment.

The 27-year-old southpaw was booted from the 40-man roster to make space for newly-acquired shortstop Caesar Izturis. An amateur free agent originally signed by the Expos who remained in the organization after the move to D.C., Severino could very well clear waivers. He's posted a 2.91 ERA over seven seasons in the minors and is left-handed, however, so it also isn't out of the realm of possibility that another franchise could put in a claim.

Severino allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings this spring while striking out four and walking a pair. The 27-year-old southpaw appeared in six games with the Nats last season and will continue to serve as relief depth in the minors.

Nationals recalled LHP Atahualpa Severino from Triple-A Syracuse.

Severino, 25, had a 3.55 ERA and a 35/22 K/BB ratio in 50 2/3 innings out of the pen for Syracuse. Lefties were hitting .288 off him, compared to .205 for right-handers, so he's definitely not going to be a specialist for the Nats.
