While fans wait on word about Adam Dunn, the Washington Nationals made a couple of decisions this week. 

Right handed reliever Tyler Walker has been unconditionally released.  Tyler went on the DL in June and then had season-ending surgery on his shoulder.  Walker went 1-0 with a 3.57 ERA in 35.1 innings with eight walks and 30 Ks.

The Nationals declined a club option for 2011 on 2B Adam Kennedy.  Kennedy had 342 at bats with a .275 AVG, 85 hits, 3 home runs, 31 RBIs, 37 walks and 44 strikeouts. 

The Nationals today secured outright waivers on LHP Scott Olsen and he elected to become a free agent.

The Nationals also secured outright waivers on LHP Jesse English. English was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse, although he became a minor-league free agent at 5 pm today.
