  • Nationals' Jose Ferrer: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Nationals placed Ferrer (shoulder) on the 60-day injured list Sunday.

    The 24-year-old has been shut down from throwing since March 15 due to a strain of the teres major muscle in his right shoulder, and he'll be sidelined for at least the first two months of the season. Ferrer is nearly halfway through his initial three-week shutdown, so he could resume throwing in early April if his shoulder checks out fine.

  • Nationals' Jose Ferrer: Managing lat injury

    Manager Dave Martinez said Thursday that Ferrer is dealing with a lat injury, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Ferrer has pitched in just one exhibition game over the past two weeks, and his injured lat explains why. It's unclear when Ferrer will be ready to get back to making consistent appearances, but Martinez said the team will know more in a couple of days.

  • Nationals' Jose Ferrer: Shut down for three weeks

    Ferrer was diagnosed with a strain of the teres major muscle Friday and will be shut down for three weeks before being reevaluated, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.comreports.

    The left-hander was limited to just one appearance during spring training due to the injury and will now begin the season on the injured list. Ferrer will require a ramp-up period after being shut down for multiple weeks, so he's likely to be sidelined for at least the first month of the season.

  • Nationals' Jose Ferrer: Collects first MLB win

    Ferrer (1-0) picked up the win Tuesday against the Rockies, allowing one run on three hits over 1.2 innings of relief. He struck out two without walking a batter.

    The southpaw wasn't exactly dominant, but he was the pitcher of record when the Nationals mounted a four-run comeback in the bottom of the eighth inning. Ferrer has been tagged for runs in four of his last six appearances and now has a bloated 5.59 ERA and 1.97 WHIP in his first 9.2 big-league innings.

  • Nationals' Jose Ferrer: Officially promoted

    The Nationals recalled Ferrer from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

    The 23-year-old southpaw holds a 3.83 ERA and 1.55 WHIP alongside a 33:20 K:BB across 40 innings in Triple-A this season, and he'll be making his MLB debut whenever he gets into a game. He figures to begin his career in middle relief, but there could be openings in the high-leverage crew soon depending on what the Nationals do at the trade deadline. Patrick Corbin was placed on the bereavement list in a corresponding move.

  • Nationals' Jose Ferrer: To be called up Friday

    Ferrer will be called up by the Nationals on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Ferrer has struggled with his command this summer at Triple-A Rochester, but the 23-year-old relief prospect owns a 3.04 ERA with 235 strikeouts in 192.2 career minor-league innings. He'll probably slide into a middle-relief role initially but could see higher-leverage opportunities after the Nats shed parts at the Aug. 1 trade deadline.

  • Nationals' Jose Ferrer: Optioned out to Triple-A

    Ferrer was optioned to Triple-A Rochester by the Nationals on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post reports.

    Ferrer had put together a strong spring and was said to be making a push for the Opening Day roster, but the Nats will give him a little more development time in the minors. The 23-year-old registered an encouraging 2.48 ERA and 78:11 K:BB in 65.1 innings last season between Low-A, High-A and Double-A ball.

  • Nationals' Jose Ferrer: Making push for roster spot

    Ferrer could open the season in the Nationals' bullpen, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    The 23-year-old left-hander has yet to pitch above Double-A, but Ferrer was added to the 40-man roster in the offseason to protect him from the Rule 5 draft and has a 3:1 K:BB through 3.2 spring innings while seeing work early in Grapefruit League games in order to face big-league hitters. The Nationals don't have many healthy lefty relief options left in camp -- Ferrer's current competition is down to journeyman Anthony Banda and fellow relief prospect Matt Cronin -- and while Sean Doolittle (elbow) should be in the mix at some point, Ferrer seems as though he's done enough in camp to win a spot. He offers a fastball that's touched 97 mph along with a changeup and slider, and with Kyle Finnegan potentially headed for a high-leverage fireman role rather than being locked into the ninth inning as a traditional closer, whoever Washington's top bullpen lefty is could see some matchup-dependent save opportunities.
