    • Cotts was reassigned to the Nationals' minor-league camp Wednesday, MLB.com's Jamal Collier reports. Cotts was a useful bullpen piece for the Brewers and Twins in 2015, but after failing to find much success while pitching exclusively at the Triple-A level last season, he was forced to settle for a minor-league deal with the Nats in the offseason. While he threw respectably in spring training, Cotts didn't shine nearly enough for the Nationals to justify opening up a 40-man roster spot for him. Assuming he decides to stick with the organization, Cotts figures to open the campaign with Triple-A Syracuse.

    • Nationals' Neal Cotts: Signs with Nationals
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cotts signed a minor league deal with the Nationals on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, The Washington Post reports. He spent all of last season at Triple-A, bouncing between the Angels', Yankees', and Rangers' systems, and the 36-year-old has a career 4.36 ERA in 443.1 major league innings. Barring a rash of injuries in the Nats' bullpen, Cotts will likely only be organizational depth for the team.

Cotts, who signed a minor league contract with the team May 20, had a 3.86 ERA in 21 innings this season for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The 36-year-old reliever has not pitched in the majors since ending last season with Minnesota and now leaves his third minor-league team this season. Cotts has clearly shown signs of decline and faces an uphill battle to return to the majors.
