Washington Nationals recall outfielder Stone Garrett

The Washington Nationals recalled outfielder Stone Garrett from Triple-A Rochester and placed outfielder Corey Dickerson on the 10-day Injured List with a left calf strain on Sunday. Nationals President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcement.

Garrett, 27, went 4-for-8 with two RBI, one stolen base and two runs scored in two games with Triple-A Rochester to start the 2023 season. He recorded three hits and two RBI on Opening Day, March 31 vs. Lehigh Valley (PHI).

Garrett hit .276 with eight doubles, four homers, 10 RBI, three walks, three stolen bases and 13 runs scored in 27 games with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2022. He made his Major League debut on Aug. 17 vs. San Francisco and recorded his first Major League hit that night, a double off Carlos Rodón. He recorded hits in four of his first five at bats and hit safely in 10 of his first 12 games. At the time of his promotion, Garrett ranked among all Minor Leaguers in RBI (T2nd, 96), home runs (T4th, 28), extra-base hits (T6th, 54) and total bases (10th, 221).

A power-hitting outfielder, Garrett entered the season with 57 homers, 187 RBI and a .538 slugging percentage in 235 total (MLB/MiLB) games across the last two seasons (2021-22). Entering 2023, he is the only player in the Minor Leagues to have at least 25 homers and 15 stolen bases in each of the last two seasons. Additionally, Garrett is one of two Minor Leaguers to have amassed at least 50 homers and 30 stolen bases since 2021.

Garrett signed a Major League contract with the Nationals on November 29, 2022 and is under team control for six seasons.

Dickerson, 33, went 0-for-3 with one walk in the first two games of the 2023 season.
