Earlier this week when the Nationals re-signed Adam LaRoche and everyone started assuming they’ll soon be trading Michael Morse he announced a planned absence from Twitter:

It was short-lived, however, because Morse just couldn’t help himself from commenting on something this important last night:

Good to have you back, “Dc_BEAST38”! I do wonder, though, whether Morse is already thinking about changing his Twitter handle to something without “DC” in it.

On November 30 the Nationals acquired catcher Yan Gomes from the Indians acquired infielder Andruw Monasterio from the Nationals for Daniel Johnson, Jefry Rodriguez and a player to be named later. The player has now been named: Andruw Monasterio.

Monasterio, an had been acquired by the Nationals from the Cubs in August in the Daniel Murphy deal. Now the 21-year-old infielder is on his way to Cleveland. He hit .267/.363/.338 in high-A ball last season. He’s probably a future utilityman. But hey, at least he now has a name.

[Editor: that’s not how “player to be named” works]

Anyway. Enjoy your Monday.
