The Nationals plan to promote A.J. Cole, one of their best prospects, to Class AAA Syracuse in the coming days.
The Nationals will invite 18 players not on the 40-man roster to big league camp.
Thrilled to be at the Futures Game, confident Nationals starter A.J. Cole finished off Team USA's victory.
The right-handed will replace Taylor Jordan in the showcase event.
The Nationals welcomed back a $2 million arm when they received Cole as the key part of their return in the Morse deal.
