Roster moves bring Tetreault, Garrett, Pérez to Nationals

The Washington Nationals announced the following roster moves on Tuesday. Nationals President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcements: 

·       Selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Jackson Tetreault (TAY-troh) from Triple-A Rochester

·       Selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Reed Garrett from Triple-A Rochester

·       Recalled left-handed pitcher Francisco Pérez from Triple-A Rochester

·       Placed right-handed pitcher Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day Injured List (retroactive to 6/11) with a stress reaction of the ribs

·       Optioned right-handed pitcher Jordan Weems to Triple-A Rochester

·       Designated infielder/outfielder Dee Strange-Gordon for assignment

·       Transferred right-handed pitcher Hunter Harvey to the 60-day Injured List

Tetreault, 26, will start for the Nationals on Tuesday night. He went 5-3 with a 4.19 ERA in 12 games (12 starts) for Triple-A Rochester. Tetreault ranked among Nationals Minor Leaguers in innings pitched (1st, 58.0), starts (1st, 12), strikeouts (T2nd, 52), wins (T2nd, 5), ERA (3rd, 4.19), opponents’ batting average (3rd, .231) and WHIP (4th, 1.29).

In six starts from May 5 to June 2, Tetreault went 5-0 with a 1.42 ERA (5 ER/31.2 IP), 31 strikeouts, 13 walks and a .173 opponents’ batting average (19-for-110). He tossed a season-high 6.0 innings in back-to-back starts, May 27 and June 2.

In 2021, Tetreault went 5-7 with a 3.81 ERA in 17 games (16 starts) between four levels of Washington’s Minor League system. He struck out 72 batters in 85.0 innings pitched. His 3.81 ERA would have ranked sixth among Nationals Minor Leaguers, but he fell just short of qualifying.

Tetreault was originally selected in the seventh round of the 2017 First-Year Player Draft out of the State College of Florida. He has posted a 3.85 ERA and 8.0 strikeouts per 9.0 innings across 90 professional games (83 starts). With Tuesday’s start, Tetreault will become the 23rd pitcher drafted/signed and developed by the Nationals (2005-pres.) to start a game for Washington.

Garrett, 29, went 4-3 with one save and a 4.00 ERA in 22 games for Triple-A Rochester. He struck out 25 batters and allowed three home runs in 27.0 innings pitched. He opened the season strong, posting a 1.37 ERA (3 ER/19.2 IP), a .159 opponents’ batting average and 9.2 strikeouts per 9.0 innings in his first 14 games of the season.

The Henrico, Va., native was a non-roster invitee to 2022 Spring Training after spending the 2020 and 2021 seasons with the Seibu Lions of the Japan Professional League. He returns to the Major Leagues for the first time since the 2019 season as a member of the Detroit Tigers.

Pérez, 24, returns for his fourth Major League stint of the season. He has pitched to a 3.12 ERA (6 ER/17.1 IP) with 27 strikeouts in 18 games for Triple-A Rochester this season. 

Strasburg, 33, made one start for Washington on June 9 at Miami. He allowed seven earned runs on eight hits with five strikeouts and two walks in 4.2 innings of work.

Weems, 29, appeared in six games for the Nationals, posting a 9.95 ERA across 6.1 innings pitched. 

Strange-Gordon, 34, hit .305 with one double, one triple, two RBI, three stolen bases and six runs scored in 23 games for Washington.
