FORMER NATS NEWS: Blue Jays Sign RHP Shawn Hill

RHP Shawn Hill was drafted by the Montreal Expos in 2000 and pitched for the Washington Nationals at RFK. Hill has had several surgeries, including three Tommy John surgeries, and has never given up his dream to pitch again.

Hill joined the York Revolution earlier this season and hasn’t given up a run in his last five starts (27 2/3 innings). Hill is 2-0, with a 2.43 ERA with 21Ks and 9 walks for York.

Toronto Blue Jays have signed Hill and he’ll start in triple-A. Hill previously pitched for Blue Jays in 2010.

District Sports Page wishes Shawn Hill the best in his career!

Washington Nationals Game 61 Review: Nats sweep Jays behind pair of Tyler Moore homers

Every day the Washington Nationals seem to find another hero. Today, it was Tyler Moore.

The slugging 1B/OF hit 62 homers combined in the minor leagues the last two seasons, and in the Nats 6-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays today everyone saw a considerable bit of that power, as he doubled and homered twice, driving in five, to lead the Nats to a win and sweep of the Jays.

Washington Nationals Game 60 Review: Nats power past Jays 4-2; Solano hits 1st MLB homer

Let this sink in for a moment. It’s June 13 and the Washington Nationals are on pace to win 100 games.

Certainly there’s a lot of time between now and the start of the playoffs, but every series it seems like the Nats are taking two out of three games — or better. This series is no different, as the Nats got five nervous innings from Chien-Ming Wang, four dominant inning from the bullpen, and three home runs to take their second consecutive game from the Toronto Blue Jays, 4-2, before 22,538 with the roof open at Skydome.

Washington Nationals Game 59 Review: Jackson goes eight strong in Nats win over Toronto

So that Edwin Jackson signing is looking pretty good these days.

The veteran right-hander generated an almost endless string of ground ball outs, going eight-plus innings to lead the Washington Nationals to a 6-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays, before a crowd of 18,513 at Skydome. Jackson, one of the league leaders in pitch economy, threw 108 in his eight innings, allowing just three hits and three walks, striking out three. [Read more…]

Former Nats Pitchers Mock and Martin Have New Opportunities

Congratulations to Garrett Mock and J.D. Martin on signing minor league contracts with the Toronto Blue Jays and Miami Marlins.

Both right-handers have such potential and suffered injuries while with the Washington Nationals. Mock and Martin are quality people and allowed District Sports Page (then Nats News Network) to do personal interviews for Valentines Day in 2010 and 2011. District Sports Page wishes them the best of luck in their new career opportunities.
