The Washington Nationals recalled RP Drew Storen from Triple-A Syracuse Thursday, Aug. 15, and optioned RP Ryan Mattheus in a corresponding move. Storen was sent down July 27 when he was 3-2 with two saves and a 5.95 ERA in 47 games. He was 0-0 with a 5.68 ERA in six games with Syracuse and threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings in his last three outings on the farm.
Fantasy Tip: Storen will likely be returned to some sort of setup role. He has very little chance of seeing save opportunities for the rest of the season unless there is an injury to Rafael Soriano, who has been solid all year long.

Washington Nationals RP Ryan Mattheus (hand) moved his minor-league rehab assignment to Double-A Harrisburg Tuesday, July 16. He allowed one run and one hit in an outing for Class A Hagerstown Sunday, July 14. Mattheus has been sidelined since May 19 after he suffered a broken right hand punching a locker. "He probably needs three or four outings to make sure that there's no problem coming back," manager Davey Johnson said. When Mattheus is ready, the team has a difficult decision since RPs Fernando Abad and Ian Krol have performed well lately.
