⚾️⚾️ The Morning Briefing: Jose A. Ferrer gets the call
The left-handed reliever will join the Nationals in Philadelphia for upcoming series.
Good Morning Washington Nationals Fan,
Here are the latest headlines and analyses around the Washington Nationals and Major League Baseball for today, June 30, 2023. My name is Haden Raymer and this is your morning briefing. Today’s top story is Jose A. Ferrer getting called up.
Leading today’s Morning Briefing: Jose A. Ferrer poised to make big league debut
Héctor Gómez reported yesterday that left-handed reliever Jose A. Ferrer would be called up from Triple-A.
Ferrer has struggled in Triple-A this season, but he’s looked better in June. For how good his stuff is, he struggled striking out hitters and walked too many batters.
No corresponding move has been reported yet, but Cory Abbott is the one that makes sense. Abbott has appeared in only five games since being called up, and Ferrer comes with more versatility in roles.
Nationals begin road series against Phillies
The Nationals will begin a three game set in Philadelphia tonight. The Nationals have not released their starters for the series, but Josiah Gray is likely your guy tonight. First pitch is at 6:05 p.m. on MASN.
