Ivany, Whitesell re-assigned to Minor League camp

The Nationals re-assigned catcher Devin Ivany and first baseman Josh Whitesell to Minor League camp Friday. 

It was a long shot for either player to make the big-league team. Washington is set behind the plate with Ivan Rodriguez and Wil Nieves, while Chris Duncan and Mike Morse are battling to become Adam Dunn’s back up at first base.

Ivany received one at-bat, while Whitesell went 2-for-8 this spring.

“I don’t think anybody would be happy about getting sent down, so, obviously, it’s a disappointment,” Whitesell said. “I have to go down there, continue to work hard and improve on all facets of my game. I hope to make an impact on this club at some point during this season.”

Ivany wasn’t available for comment.
