Nationals recall Willingham

The Washington Nationals recalled right-handed pitcher Amos Willingham from Triple-A Rochester on Friday and optioned catcher Drew Millas to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday. Nationals President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcement.

Willingham, 25, made his Major League debut on June 28, 2023, at Seattle after his contract was selected on June 26. He enjoyed four stints with the big league club in his rookie season and finished his first campaign strong, posting a 3.48 ERA (4 ER/10.1 IP) in five outings during the month of September, including 3.0 scoreless innings with two strikeouts and no walks on Sept. 2 vs. Miami.

The Rome, Ga., native went 5-1 with five saves and a 2.02 ERA in 28 games between Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Rochester last season and struck out 36 in 35.2 innings of work.

Willingham started the 2024 season with Triple-A Rochester, where he held opponents hitless in his first 3.1 innings of work, striking out two. In all, he was 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA (3 ER / 5.0 IP) in three games for the Red Wings this season.

Millas, 26, went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in one game with Washington this season.
