“Cesar was a great teammate around here,” Manager Davey Johnson said Friday. “He’s a class act. He really played good. He’s a good player.”

Johnson hoped the Nationals could retain Izturis, 32, if he made it through waivers, but Rizzo said that did not appear to be an option. The Nationals acquired Izturis off waivers Aug. 6 from the Brewers. Izturis, a 12-year-veteran, appeared in five games for the Nationals and went 2 for 4 with a double.
