A lot of news in Nats camp

The team optioned right-hander Collin Balester to Triple-A Syracuse, reassigned outfielder Corey Patterson and infielder Juan Castillo to Minor League camp.

The Nationals also sent catcher Javier Valentin to Minor League camp, but he opted to become a free agent.

Balester’s demotion means that right-handers Shairon Martis and Jordan Zimmermann will be the fourth and fifth starters in the rotation, respectively.

The Nationals also placed outfielder Wily Mo Pena on waivers. Opposing teams have three days to claim him and pick up his $2 million salary. If not, the Nationals could outright him to Triple-A Syracuse or Pena could elect to become a free agent. Washington would prefer if Pena went to Syracuse and get more at-bats.

There will be more information on Nationals.com
