Tidbits from Nationals Park

Right-hander Shairon Martis wasn’t promoted to the big leagues Tuesday because he reached his innings limit. He threw a combined 160 innings for Washington and Triple-A Syracuse.

General manager Mike Rizzo said Martis will get a chance to compete for a rotation spot  next year.

* I forgot to mention another promotion the Nationals made on Tuesday. They called up athletic trainer Beth Jarrett from Triple-A Syracuse. She is in her eighth season with the organization. 

Prior to joining Syracuse, she spent four consecutive seasons with Double-A Harrisburg as the team’s head athletic trainer. She also spent time with Class A Savannah and Clinton. 

* Marco Estrada will be the Nationals’ fifth starter and will pitch against the Marlins on Saturday. Left-hander Ross Detwiler will work out of the bullpen the rest of the season because he is close to his innings limit.
