    Nationals' J.J. Hoover: Links up with Washington

    J.J. Hoover agreed to a minor-league contract Friday with the Washington Nationals, Dave Clark of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Hoover made two appearances at the big-league level with the Brewers in 2018 but lost his spot on the 40-man roster and was later released from the organization shortly after serving up a walk-off home run against the Cardinals on April 10. The right-handed reliever took some time away from baseball after getting cut loose by Milwaukee but will try to get his career back on track with the Nationals. Hoover, who owns a 4.17 ERA and 9.3 K/9 across 285 career appearances in the majors, looks destined to open the season at Triple-A Fresno but should at least receive an opportunity to vie for a spot in the big-league bullpen this spring.

    Brewers' J.J. Hoover: Dumped from roster after blown save

    The Milwaukee Brewers designated J.J. Hoover for assignment Wednesday.Hoover was dropped from the 40-man roster just hours after blowing a save and taking the loss against the Cardinals. After putting away the first two batters in the bottom of the 10th inning with the Brewers clinging to a 3-2 lead, Hoover allowed a walk followed by back-to-back singles, the last of which scored the tying run. Hoover came back out for the bottom of the 11th and yielded another base hit before surrendering a walkoff two-run home run to Matt Carpenter. The inability to rein in the long ball has been an issue for Hoover throughout his career and could make other teams reluctant to trade or put in a waiver claim for the 30-year-old.

Although Hoover was able to get out of most jams, a higher FIP of 4.75 and 1.77 WHIP point to impending regression during this upcoming campaign.

    Diamondbacks' J.J. Hoover: Makes eighth appearance of September

    J.J. Hoover walked the lone batter he faced in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 7-2 loss to the Giants on Sunday.Hoover rejoined the Diamondbacks when rosters expanded Sept. 1, and manager Torey Lovullo has regularly leaned on the right-hander, mainly as a specialist against same-handed hitting. The 30-year-old has already made eight appearances in September, and though he didn't get the job done Sunday, he's still tossed 3.1 scoreless innings over that span. Look for Hoover to continue seeing work as part of the bridge to closer Fernando Rodney.
