A day after acquiring outfielder Austin Kearns, the Nationals signed fromer Orioles CF Luis Matos and waived CF Marlon Byrd.
The Matos/Byrd transactions appears to be a wash despite Byrd having done nothing to retain a job he has had ample opportunites to seize. C'mon, Marlon Anderson beats him to playing time.
Not that Luis Matos did anything this season to deserve a job over a player with similar production.
The Nats have RF jam with Kearns and Guillen. The signing of CF Luis Matos signals another move.
