Barrett had a 3.21 ERA and 43/18 K/BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings earlier this season out of the Washington bullpen and then rattled off 10 scoreless appearances after being demoted to Syracuse. He should fare well in a middle relief role down the stretch.

Nationals optioned RHP Aaron Barrett to Triple-A Syracuse.

Barrett had allowed just one hit and fanned six batters over 4 1/3 scoreless innings, but the Nationals badly needed a fresh arm for their overused bullpen. The 26-year-old right-hander should be back up soon.

Aaron Barrett whiffed Giancarlo Stanton -- the only batted he faced -- in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Barrett got Stanton to chase a slider off the plate with two outs in the eighth inning in what was a 2-1 game at the time. The 26-year-old has been awfully impressive in the early going, spinning four shutout innings while striking out six and allowing no hits. Nationals manager Matt Williams has shown that he already trusts Barrett to handle a late-inning role.

Aaron Barrett has made the Nationals' bullpen.

It'll be the first taste of the majors for Barrett, who registered a promising 2.15 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 69 strikeouts in 50 1/3 innings last season at Double-A Harrisburg. He'll start out in middle relief but could move quickly into a setup role.

Nationals purchased the contract of RHP Aaron Barrett from Double-A Harrisburg.

He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft. Barrett was terrific at Harrisburg this past season, putting up a 2.15 and 69/15 K/BB ratio across 50 1/3 innings. He'll likely begin 2014 at Triple-A.
