Simontacchi A Starter: It looks like former Bluefish P Jason Simontacchi has gone from an Atlantic League afterthought to the Washington Nationals third starter.

According to The Washington Post, Simontacchi is likely headed to the #3 spot in the Nationals patchwork starting rotation. However, since he isn’t on the 40-man roster, the team may have difficulty in adding him and taking someone off.

The former Cardinal went 1-0 with an 0.84 ERA in ten relief appearances with Bridgeport last season. – Mike Ashmore, mashmore@patriotsbaseball.com

Simo-Man is one of my all-time favorite baseball stories — from the Italian League to the big leagues. But if he’s the Nats’ third starter, that says something about the Nats.

It’s basically John Patterson and everyone else for the Nats.

Considering that Patterson’s probably best suited as a #2 or #3 starter in the show, the Marlins should leave them in the dust in the battle for the “coveted” #4 spot in the NL East.

Sounds as if Andy Van Hekken signed with the Partriots.

I’d loooooooove to pretend I knew about that, but getting names isn’t anywhere near as easy as it should be.

I’d heard about another starter who’s likely to return, and a former Yankee pitcher who might join the rotation as well. My 3/22 notebook in the Democrat will have more on those guys, though.

Being a diehard Nats fan isn’t easy these days but I don’t think they will have any trouble finding a spot for Simontacchi on the 40-man roster.
