Nats release Glover; Sosa ready to join Syracuse
The Nationals gave right-hander Gary Glover his unconditional release on Saturday.
Glover was pitching for Triple A Syracuse and had a 6.32 ERA in 10 appearances.
He became expendable after Washington put Mike MacDougal on the Syracuse roster. The plan is to have MacDougal join the Major League club in a couple of weeks.
Acting general manager Mike Rizzo said right-hander Jorge Sosa most likely will be ready to play for Triple-A Syracuse on May 22. Sosa, who signed a Minor League contract with Washington in December, must complete a 50-game Minor League suspension for testing positive for using an amphetamine. He served more than half of the suspension last year.
