Nationals recalled RHP Taylor Hill from Triple-A Syracuse.
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. May 30 - 2:27 PM
