Dykstra dealt to Washington
The Brewers traded minor leaguer Cutter Dykstra, along with cash considerations, to the Nationals for OF Nyjer Morgan. He is the son of former major leaguer Lenny Dykstra. He played third base for Wisconsin of the low Class A Midwest League last season, where he hit .312 with 39 RBI and 27 steals. The second-round pick in 2008 also had a stellar .416 on-base percentage. Dykstra is expected to report on Monday and likely to join Potomac of the high Class A Carolina League. "He's an athletic kid, he's a really good runner," Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said. "He's a good offensive player with a high on-base percentage guy and works counts. He's really the type of guy that hits at the top of the lineup. Has a little pop and speed and really commands the strike zone."
