Carroll outrighted to Syracuse, Wang has first rehab assignment
The Nationals have outrighted outfielder Brett Carroll to Triple A Syracuse on Monday. The news comes 10 days after the team designated him for assignment.
Carroll was used mainly as a pinch-runner, but was hitless in two at-bats.
In the other news, right-hander Chien Ming Wang, on the disabled list because of a left hamstring injury, had his first rehab assignment in extended Spring Training against the Tigers on Monday. He pitched three innings and allowed one run on five hits. He threw 51 pitches, 37 strikes.
