On his way home from the ballpark after Triple-A Syracuse's game Saturday night in Columbus, Andrew Stevenson received a call from a number he did not recognize. Little did he know, it was the call he had waited for his whole life. The Nationals promoted Stevenson, the team's No. 5 prospect as rated by MLBPipeline, to the Majors on Sunday to headline their flurry of roster moves intended to help fill their shortage of outfielders.
Spin: "You kind of don't know if it's real at first," Stevenson said. "Your heart's kind of pounding. Just excited to be here and trying to help out whenever I can." Catcher Pedro Severino, the team's No. 7 prospect, was also promoted to the Majors. Stevenson and Severino are taking the place of Chris Heisey, who heads to the disabled list with a strained left groin, and Ryan Raburn, who heads to the bereavement list. Jayson Werth was transferred to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster for Stevenson.
