Casey Janssen is healthy, ready to make his Nationals debut


Casey Janssen was signed for $5 million this offseason to replace Tyler Clippard as the Nationals’ primary setup man, but instead he spent the first six weeks of the season on the disabled list with a shoulder injury.

Janssen has been rehabbing in the minors and the Nationals are convinced he’s healthy now, activating the 33-year-old right-hander from the DL.

Janssen has a history of arm problems, so counting on him being healthy is no sure thing, but from 2010-2014 he threw 286 innings with a 2.99 ERA and 261/66 K/BB ratio for the Blue Jays.
