Nationals acquired LHP Felipe Rivero, OF Drew Vettleson, and C Jose Lobaton from the Rays for RHP Nate Karns.

Rivero had a 3.40 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 91/52 K/BB ratio in 127 innings last season at High-A Charlotte. The 22-year-old Venezuelan was a participant in the 2012 Futures Game and will hope to blossom in the Nats' system.

Felipe Rivero is headed to the Nationals as part of the four-player Jose Lobaton-Nate Karns trade.

The fourth player involved remains unidentified. Rivero, 22, posted a 3.40 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 91/52 K/BB ratio in 127 innings last season at High-A Charlotte. The Venezuelan left-hander is not considered a top prospect.

Rays purchased the contract of LHP Felipe Rivero from Low-A Bowling Green.

He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft. Rivero posted a 3.41 ERA while striking out 98 over 113 1/3 innings at Low-A this season. The 21-year-old obviously isn't close to big league-ready.
