Collins had his contract purchased from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports. The 28-year-old southpaw compiled a 2.77 ERA and 1.54 WHIP across 13 innings (17 appearances) with the Nationals before getting designated for assignment earlier in the year. Collins is expected to take the roster spot of Ryan Madson (back), who was not listed on the lineup card Tuesday.
The Nationals outrighted Collins to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday. Collins was pushed through waivers the same day he was designated for assignment, with none of the other 29 teams having interest in adding the reliever to their 40-man roster. The lefty will thus stick in the Nationals organization after posting a 2.77 ERA and 1.54 WHIP over 17 appearances with the big club, his first in the majors since the 2014 season.
The Nationals designated Collins for assignment Wednesday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports. Collins was removed from the active and 40-man roster to clear a spot for Matt Adams (finger), who was activated from the 10-day disabled list following a three-week absence. The lefty reliever accrued a 2.77 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 8:6 K:BB over 13 innings across 17 appearances -- his first in the big leagues since 2014. Collins is expected to report to Triple-A Syracuse if the Nationals are unable to find a trade partner for him and if he goes unclaimed off waivers.
