Nationals DFA Montz, Claim English

Pete McElroy of MASNSports.com reports that the Nationals have designated catcher Luke Montz for assignment, clearing room on the roster for pitcher Jesse English, who was claimed off waivers from San Francisco. The Giants designated English for assignment earlier this month.

Montz, 26, hit just .181/.288/.313 in 369 plate appearances for Washington's Double- and Triple-A affiliates this year. He had a cup of coffee with the Nats last year and was ranked the club's 29th best prospect before the season by Baseball America. English, a 25-yr old lefty, put up a 4.20 ERA and a 1.25 K/BB ratio in 100.2 IP for San Fran's Double-A affiliate this year. He's never pitched in the majors.
