Jewett to join Nationals this week
Triple A Syracuse manager Trent Jewett will join the Nationals on Tuesday as an extra coach. The Nationals are rewarding Jewett for guiding the Chiefs to a 75-66 record.
Syracuse was eliminated from playoff contention with an 8-2 loss to the Rochester Red Wings on Saturday night.
Jewett is best known for being a managerial candidate after the Nationals dismissed Frank Robinson as their skipper in 2006. The job eventually went to Manny Acta.
