Posted by Dave Nichols | Saturday, May 29, 2010 | , , | 2 comments »

After the Washington Nationals defeated the San Diego Padres 5-3 Friday night, they returned OF Justin Maxwell to Triple-A Syracuse to make room for Satruday's starter, J.D. Martin.

Martin will face Padres rookie Mat Latos Saturday afternoon.

Maxwell is hitting .138/.395/.276 in 43 plate appearances for the Nationals this season.

    Dave - Your stat line was from after Thursday's game.

    Here is Justin's current statline.

    .121/.362/.242

    Even worse, he is
    .000/.125/.000 in his 13 at-bats vs. Right-handed pitchers this season.

    I think the Nats have a few pitchers with better statlines.
