Nationals bring up Mench from Triple-A Syracuse
The Washington Nationals have selected outfielder Kevin Mench’s
contract from Triple-A Syracuse.
The move was made Friday night before Washington’s game at the
Los Angeles Dodgers.
Mench fills the roster spot of outfielder Nyjer Morgan, who went
on the 15-day disabled list Thursday because of a right hip
Mench was hitting .249 with three homers and 40 RBIs in 87 games
at Syracuse this season. He hasn’t played in the majors since 2008
with the Toronto Blue Jays. He has played for three teams in seven
big league seasons.
