The Washington Nationals announced that they have activated Xavier Nady from the DL and have designated him for assignment. The move was necessary as a roster spot was needed for John Lannan as he is set to start game one of the double header today.
When Nady wasn't on the DL, he hit just .157 with 3 home runs and 6 RBIs in 102 at bats for the Nats.
The Nationals signed Nady to a minor league deal during Spring Training.
Last season, Nady battled the injury bug appearing in only 82 games for Arizona. In those games, he posted a .248 avg, .287 OBP and .359 SLG while hitting just 4 home runs and collecting 35 RBIs.
