Armas In, LeCroy Out

The Nationals activated Tony Armas today and DFAd Matt LeCroy. They have 10 days to trade or release LeCroy. (Although I suppose they could try to send him to the minors -- if he consented.)

Hopefully LeCroy will catch on with an AL team that needs the RH side of a DH platoon. He's a good guy who got screwed over on this team in terms of role and playing time.

O'Connor is due back tomorrow. I'd suspect that Damian Jackson would get the wack -- although it could be Matos, too. If Jackson's chocking fit doesn't ease up, maybe they could DL him. We'll see tomorrow.


  • LeCroy was asked to back up first base should Nick Johnson get injured, which hasn't happened (knock on wood), and catcher to spell Brian Schneider at times, which led to the Astros game, neither of which gave LeCroy much playing time. LeCroy was the single alternative to Gary Barnett and another year of Carlos Baerga. A single year player who isn't in the long term plans. Hopefully they can trade him and get something, a minor league player at best.

    I agree, Jackson is the next to go in the full outfield.
