Elijah Dukes sent down to Triple A Syracuse

I have been informed that Nationals outfielder Elijah Dukes has been optionned to Triple-A Syracuse to make room for outfielder Nyjer Morgan and pitcher Sean Burnett.

The Nationals have been unhappy with Dukes’ play of late. They feel that he has made too many fundamental mistakes in the outfield and on the bases.

In fact, earlier this season, acting general manager Mike Rizzo warned Dukes that he would be sent down if he continued to be late for work.

My pal, Alden Gonzalez, will have more on this story.
