Nationals Outright Chris Marrero

Here are today's outright assignments and minor moves from around the league…

  • The Nationals announced that they have outrighted first baseman Chris Marrero to Triple-A, thereby removing him from their 40-man roster. The Nats selected the now-25-year-old Marrero 15th overall in the 2006 draft, but he's hit just .232/.256/.272 for their big league club in 133 plate appearances. He showed power early on in his minor league career, but that has faded, as evidenced by his .281/.353/.413 and 25 homers in 1140 plate appearances at the Triple-A level. As CSNWashington's Mark Zuckerman points out on Twitter, Marrero will be a free agent after the World Series, ending his tenure with the team that drafted him.
  • As can be seen in MLBTR's DFA Tracker, the only players that are currently in DFA limbo are Pedro Beato of the Red Sox and Peter Moylan of the Dodgers.
