The Washington Nationals have reshuffled their bullpen, reinstating right-hander Brad Lidge from the disabled list and putt righty Henry Rodriguez on the DL.
Drew Storen saved 43 games in his first full season with the big club, so when he went down followed by the injury of backup closer Brad Lidge, it could have easily spelled disaster for the first half of the year. Leave it up to wily Davey Johnson to find a way to patchwork saves together and still have his team sitting atop the NL East.
Nats pitcher Brad Lidge previews season and wowed by Bryce Harper.
Last season, the right-hander only threw 19 1-3 innings for the Philadelphia Phillies, going 0-2 with a 1.40 ERA and one save.
