Nationals Release Carr, Designate Mock

The Nationals announced that they released right-hander Adam Carr and designated right-hander Garrett Mock for assignment (Twitter link). In related moves, they reinstated Stephen Strasburg from the 60-day disabled list, selected the contracts of Brad Peacock and Steve Lombardozzi and transferred Cole Kimball to the 60-day disabled list. Washington's 40-man roster remains full.

Carr, 27, has yet to appear in the Major Leagues. He spent the 2011 season with Washington's top affiliate, posting a 6.63 ERA with 6.2 K/9 and 5.7 BB/9 in 19 innings. Mock, 28, last appeared in the Major Leagues in 2010. He spent this season with four of the Nationals' affiliates, posting a 6.39 ERA with 9.3 K/9 and 5.3 BB/9 in 49 1/3 total innings of work.

Finally!!!! Something is happening with Mock, he has just been sitting on the 40 man roster for no reason for what seems like forever!!

I heard that Carr was re-signed.  Any news on that?  I think he could still be an asset. Last season was cut short due to shoulder surgery and if he comes back healthy, I’m sure he’ll be hungry.
