The Nats are making some uniform changes too

Leave a comment

In addition to the Padres throwbacks mentioned earlier today, the Nats will be making a couple of changes for next year too.  Nothing radical — just changing the road undershirts and socks from red to blue blue to red — but it’s a better move for the Nats than handing first base to Adam Dunn, so it’s worth noting.

Also worth noting is the fact that I kind of get into uniform stuff.  Not in an utterly obsessive Paul Lukas kind of way, but certainly more than your average blogger.  A couple of years ago on my old blog I did a massive best uniform/worst uniform post covering every team. It’s kind of outdated now and only about 11 people read it in the first place, so I may update that sometime in the next couple of weeks.  Suggestions for inclusion — and excommunication — are welcome.

Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reports that the Blue Jays are considering moving starter Jaime Garcia to the bullpen. If they go that route, Sam Gaviglio would start in Garcia’s place on Sunday against the Angels.

Garcia, 31, has struggled to a 6.16 ERA with a 56/31 K/BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings over 13 starts this season. Gaviglio, meanwhile, has a 3.75 ERA with 35 striekouts and 11 walks in 36 innings across six starts and two relief appearances for the Jays this year.

Garcia inked a one-year, $10 million contract with the Jays in February. The deal includes a club option for the 2019 season worth $10 million with a $2 million buyout.
