The Nationals are getting some guys back.
WSH has activated Alex Avila, Yan Gomes, Brad Hand and Jordy Mercer off the injured list. Tres Barrera and Ryne Harper optioned to taxi squad. Carter Kieboom and Cody Wilson go to the alternate site.
Jonathan Lucroy stays on the roster.
To make room on the roster, the Nationals optioned Tres Barrera and Ryne Harper and added them to their taxi squad for this road trip. They optioned Carter Kieboom to Fredericksburg/the alternate site. And they've returned outfielder Cody Wilson to the alternate site.
Today's MLB Debut chart features two new Nationals — Cody Wilson and Sam Clay.
Wilson was signed by Alex Morales
Clay was signed by Jack Powell of the Twins, who gets his second big leaguer of the year.
Powell also signed Akil Baddoo.
Congrats to Alex Morales(WAS) for CF Cody Wilson making his @MLB debut with the @Nationals today.
@alexmor49646544 drafted & signed Cody with the Nationals in the 13th round(401st overall) of the 2018 draft out of @FAUBaseball.
Congrats Alex and Cody! https://t.co/VRIFyKirRX
Ryan Zimmerman singles w/ one out in the eighth and the Nationals don't have the depth right now to pinch-run for him. The logical choice would be Cody Wilson, who was promoted to help fill the gaps left by quarantining players. But Zimmerman stays in and Starlin Castro singles.

One player to follow among the Nationals moves:
Outfielder Cody Wilson
Washington thought he could play CF in the Majors right away because of his speed, arguably the best in the whole system. Bat is a major issue and held him off the Pipeline Top 30, but his glove will play.
Nationals announced that Will Harris is on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to March 29) with right hand inflammation. They have selected the contract of Jonathan Lucroy to the major league roster. They have also selected the contract of Cody Wilson as a replacement player.
