  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Contract selected by Washington

    Machado had his contract selected from Triple-A Rochester by the Nationals on Wednesday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    Machado will last appeared in a major-league contest in early June, but he will now return to the big-league bullpen. The right-hander owns an inflated 8.47 ERA and 1.76 WHIP with 12 strikeouts over 17 innings in 14 appearances with Washington this season. In order to make room for Machado on the 40-man roster, Victor Robles (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list while Amos Willingham was optioned to Triple-A to open a big-league roster spot.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Machado cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Officially DFA'd

    The Nationals designated Machado for assignment Tuesday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    Machado was expected to lose his spot on the Nats' 40-man roster, and the promotion of Jordan Weems on Tuesday will officially force Machado off the team. The 30-year-old reliever hasn't found much success in the majors this season with an 8.47 ERA and 1.76 WHIP. However, he's performed much better at the Triple-A level, which gives him a good chance at latching on with another organization.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Set to lose roster spot

    Washington is expected to designate Machado for assignment in the near future, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    The Nationals are off Monday, so the team may wait another day before making the transaction official and replacing Machado on the 40-man and 26-man rosters. Dougherty speculates the corresponding move might be adding Sean Doolittle to a bullpen that currently lacks a left-handed reliever. Machado has struggled mightily over his 14 relief appearances for Washington in 2023, pitching to an 8.47 ERA and 1.76 WHIP across 17 innings.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Called up from Triple-A

    The Nationals selected Machado's contract from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.

    Machado gives the Nationals a fresh arm in the bullpen and has pitched solidly in the International League with a 2.92 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 12.1 innings in 10 appearances. He'll likely serve as a middle-relief arm initially.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Reassigned to MiLB camp

    Machado was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Nationals on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Machado was attempting to win a spot in the Washington bullpen, but at least to begin 2023, he's going to head to the minors instead. The 29-year-old will likely operate out of the bullpen for Triple-A Rochester.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Flashed heat in WBC

    Machado was touching 98 mph with his fastball while pitching for Venezuela during the World Baseball Classic, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    The 29-year-old right-hander is also out of minor-league options, which could give him a leg up on winning one of the final spots in the Nationals' bullpen. Machado also has a 5:0 K:BB through three scoreless innings in Grapefruit League play, so he's done just about everything he can this spring to earn a job. The Nats' bullpen is very unsettled behind Kyle Finnegan, so if Machado's stuff has taken a step forward this offseason, he could work his way into some high-leverage work before long.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Machado cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester by the Nationals on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    He's lost his spot on the 40-man roster but will remain in the organization. Machado collected a 3.34 ERA in 59.1 innings last season for the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Designated for assignment

    Machado was designated for assignment by the Nationals on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Machado recorded a 3.34 ERA in 59.1 innings last season, but the Nationals seemingly don't believe he'll repeat that figure. Both his 17.6 percent strikeout rate and 10.0 percent walk rate were poor, and his 4.51 FIP suggests he overachieved by more than a run. He posted similar numbers in 2021, managing a 3.53 ERA in 35.2 frames despite a 4.63 FIP, so it's possible another team will buy into him as a pitcher who can reliably outperform his peripherals, but it's unlikely he earns anything more than a lower-leverage role.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Returns to majors

    The Nationals recalled Machado from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.

    He'll rejoin the big-league bullpen as a replacement for right-hander Victor Arano (shoulder), who was placed on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. Over 43.1 innings with the Nationals on the season, Machado has logged a 4.57 ERA and 1.43 WHIP to go with one win and two holds.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Sent down Friday

    Machado was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Friday.

    Machado has served mainly as a middle reliever for the Nationals this year, and he's posted a 4.57 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 43.1 innings over 38 appearances in the majors. However, he'll head to Rochester as part of a set of moves to make room on the active roster for Tyler Clippard and Jake McGee.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Back with major-league club

    Machado was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

    The 29-year-old was sent down Friday but will rejoin the Nationals' bullpen a day later after Evan Lee (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list. Machado has made 17 relief appearances in the big leagues this year and has posted a 5.48 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 23 innings.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Recalled from Triple-A

    Machado was promoted from Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Machado will return to the big leagues after being sent down Tuesday, filling in for Josh Rogers (shoulder) who was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Sent back to Triple-A

    Machado was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Machado appeared in each of the Nationals' last two games, allowing a combined five runs in 2.1 innings of work to raise his ERA to 5.40 on the year. He may continue to earn opportunities throughout the season but is unlikely to find himself in anything other than a low-leverage role.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Called up as 27th man

    Machado was recalled from Triple-A Rochester to serve as the 27th man in Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Machado earned a spot on Washington's Opening Day roster this year and posted a 2.45 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 11 innings over 10 relief appearances in April. The right-hander will provide additional bullpen depth during Saturday's twin bill.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Sent to minors

    The Nationals optioned Machado to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday.

    Washington will swap Machado off the 26-man active roster for another right-handed reliever in Carl Edwards, who was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Since breaking camp as a member of the bullpen, Machado has worked mostly in the middle innings for Washington while delivering a 2.45 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 8:5 K:BB across 11 frames.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Having strong spring

    Machado gave up a hit and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless inning of relief during Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

    The 28-year-old right-hander has looked good in camp, as he hasn't given up a run in three Grapefruit League appearances with a 5:1 K:BB. Machado picked up 10 holds over 40 appearances out of the Nationals' bullpen last year, and he figures to fill a similar middle-relief role in 2022.

  • Nationals' Andres Machado: Handed loss Sunday

    Machado (1-2) took the loss Sunday versus the Mets, allowing one run on three hits while recording only one out.

    The right-hander was brought on for the eighth inning, but he loaded the bases and recorded his only out on a Patrick Mazeika sacrifice fly that scored the Mets' go-ahead run. Machado has yielded five runs (four earned) in his last four appearances spanning just 1.2 innings. He has a reasonable 3.65 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 21:7 K:BB across 24.2 innings this year, and he's added six holds and two blown saves.
