Nationals sent RHP Taylor Hill outright to Triple-A Syracuse.
Hill--who passed through waivers after being designated for assignment on January 6--will receive an invite to spring training. The 26-year-old allowed five runs in 12 innings for the Nationals during the past season, but has yet to see any sort of extended run at the major league level. Outside of the numbers he posted with the Nationals, he was roughed up to the tune of a 5.23 ERA in 22 starts for Triple-A Syracuse. Jan 13 - 4:44 PM

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Stephen Drew on the Nationals' 40-man roster. Hill spent most of 2015 at the Triple-A level, posting a 5.23 ERA over 23 starts, but he has shown some potential in the past and could draw some interest on waivers.

Hill had a 4.35 ERA and a 26/9 K/BB ratio in 51 2/3 innings for Syracuse. This will probably be a short stay for him; while there's the chance he could stick as the replacement for Stephen Strasburg in the rotation, that role is more likely to go to A.J. Cole.
