Kieboom (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Fresno on Monday. The 28-year-old was placed on the 60-day minor-league injured list in late September, and was sent outright to Triple-A Fresno on Monday. In 52 games with Double-A Harrisburg this season, Kieboom hit just .196/.271/.256 with one home run.
Kieboom was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday with elbow inflammation, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. Kieboom was placed on the minor-league injured list in late August and will now be sidelined for the rest of the season. Tres Barrera had his contract selected from Double-A Harrisburg in a corresponding move to provide some additional depth behind the plate for Washington.
The Nationals optioned Kieboom to Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. The Nationals haven't announced a corresponding transaction, but the team is expected to reinstate reliever Hunter Strickland (personal) from the paternity list to take Kieboom's spot on the active roster. Kieboom went unused during his two-day stint with the big club.
The Nationals officially recalled Kieboom from Double-A Harrisburg on Tuesday, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports. Word surfaced earlier in the day that Kieboom was en route to Washington after a spot on the 25-man roster opened up with Hunter Strickland (personal) landing on the paternity list. Strickland will be activated ahead of Friday's game against the Marlins -- if not sooner -- so Kieboom will likely be in line for an abbreviated stint with the big club.
The Nationals plan to recall Kieboom from Double-A Harrisburg ahead of Tuesday's game against the Orioles, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Washington will bring Kieboom in as third catcher and extra bench bat with reliever Hunter Strickland (personal) expected to be placed on the paternity list later Tuesday. Strickland will have to be reinstated ahead of Friday's series opener versus the Marlins, so Kieboom may only be in line for a brief stay with the big club before reporting back to Harrisburg.
