Storen staying in Minor Leagues
Right-hander Drew Storen, the Nationals’ first-round pick in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, continues to have success in the Minor Leagues.
Now with Double-A Harrisburg, Storen has two saves and hasn’t given up a run in two innings. However, don’t look for Storen to be in the big leagues this year. He most likely will end the season with Harrisburg and then play in the Arizona Fall League.
“I’m encouraged that he is taking several steps toward where we think he is going to be — quicker to the big leagues,” acting general manager Mike Rizzo said. “We put him in Double-A before the Aug. 17 deadline for the Arizona Fall League. You have to be in Double-A to play there. If all goes well, he will pitch there.”
