Nationals Release Ron Villone

The Nationals released lefty reliever Ron Villone, tweets NatsTown News.  Villone, 40, was given three spring appearances to show his stuff.  He at least got more of a look than Eddie Guardado, who the Nats cut after two games.

Villone posted a 4.25 ERA, 6.1 K/9, and 5.4 BB/9 in 48.6 innings for the Nationals last year.  Lefties have hit .293/.379/.414 against him over the past three seasons.
