The Nationals added to their bullpen depth earlier this week, signing right-hander Nash Walters to a minor league deal (h/t to TalkNats). Walters has been assigned to membership’s Double-A affiliate in Harrisburg.

Initially drafted within the third spherical of the 2015 draft by the Brewers, Walters was initially slowed in his improvement by Tommy John surgical procedure in 2017 and 2020’s cancelled minor league season. He made his full-season debut in 2021 and shortly superior via the minor leagues, reaching Triple-A with the Brewers in 2022. Walters was shipped to Anaheim in a money cope with the Angels that September and made his massive league debut within the membership’s ultimate sport of 2022 towards the A’s. He recorded a single out whereas permitting a success and a stroll in his massive league debut.

Walters was non-tendered by the membership final November, and whereas he initially re-signed on a minor league deal the next month, the Angels launched him simply earlier than Opening Day. That led Walters to signal on with the White Sox on a minor league deal in the direction of the top of April. He struggled significantly for Chicago within the minors, with a brutal 9.64 ERA in 28 innings of labor. Whereas Walters was struggling badly by way of run prevention outcomes, his robust 31.9% strikeout price seemingly caught the curiosity of Nationals after the White Sox launched him earlier this month.

Now in his fourth group of the previous calendar yr, Walters will look to get his run prevention numbers consistent with his tantalizing stuff on the Double-A degree for the Nationals. If he manages to take action, it wouldn’t be a shock to see Walters contribute on the massive league degree later this season, significantly if the approaching commerce deadline on August 1 opens up house within the Nationals’ bullpen.
