  • Nationals' Joe La Sorsa: Back in majors

    The Nationals recalled La Sorsa from Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    With MacKenzie Gore (finger) headed for the injured list, La Sorsa will come up from the minors to give Washington's bullpen some extra depth. La Sorsa holds a 6.98 ERA through 19.1 innings since joining the Nationals in June, and he will likely be limited to low-leverage outings while with the major-league club.

  • Nationals' Joe La Sorsa: Recalled to Washington

    The Nationals recalled La Sorsa from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    La Sorsa will come up from the minors to fill MacKenzie Gore's spot on the roster after Gore was placed on the bereavement list Thursday. The 25-year-old lefty has put up a 5.66 ERA and 1.31 WHIP across 20.2 innings in the majors and will simply add depth to the Nats' bullpen while Gore is out.

  • Nationals' Joe La Sorsa: Optioned to Rochester

  • Nationals' Joe La Sorsa: Collects first big-league win

    La Sorsa (1-0) picked up the win in Sunday's come-from-behind victory over the A's, giving up one hit and striking out four over two scoreless innings.

    The 25-year-old southpaw entered the game in a low-leverage situation in the eighth with the Nationals down 7-2, but a six-run rally in the bottom of the ninth handed him his first win in the majors. La Sorsa has been scored upon only once in 10 appearances since the All-Star break, posting a 2.92 ERA, 0.65 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB through 12.1 innings over that stretch, but his usage puts a firm cap on any potential fantasy utility he might have.

  • Nationals' Joe La Sorsa: Back in big leagues

    La Sorsa was called up from Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    La Sorsa was sent down to Rochester on July 7, but he'll rejoin Washington's bullpen ahead of the team's three-game series against the Cubs on the road. The left-hander will replace Hunter Harvey (forearm) on the Nationals' major-league roster after Harvey was placed on the 15-day injured list Monday. La Sorsa has produced a bloated 18.00 ERA and 3.25 WHIP with four strikeouts over four innings in five relief appearances with Washington this season.

  • Nationals' Joe La Sorsa: Moves up to big leagues

    The Nationals recalled La Sorsa from Triple-A Rochester ahead of Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    He'll be joining the big-league bullpen as a replacement for Carl Edwards, who was placed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation. La Sorsa made a pair of relief appearances in the majors with the Rays earlier this season, but he'll be joining the Nationals for the first time since Washington claimed him off waivers June 8.

  • Nationals' Joe La Sorsa: Claimed off waivers by Nats

    The Nationals claimed La Sorsa off waivers from the Rays on Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    La Sorsa was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay last weekend after making two relief appearances -- his first career appearances at the major-league level. The 25-year-old left-hander will report to the Nats' Triple-A affiliate in Rochester.

  • Rays' Joe La Sorsa: Designated for assignment

    La Sorsa was designated for assignment by the Rays on Saturday.

    La Sorsa allowed one run on three hits in 2.1 innings of relief in the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Red Sox. That was the first run he gave up in 4.1 innings at the big-league level this season. The long-relief effort means he won't be ready to pitch again for a few days, so he'll be the one to lose his roster spot as the Rays bring in fresh arms for the nightcap.

  • Rays' Joe LaSorsa: Promotion official

    In order to clear room for LaSorsa on the 40-man roster and the 26-man active roster, the Rays designated right-hander Chris Muller for assignment and optioned right-hander Trevor Kelley to Triple-A. Over his nine outings (three starts) with Durham this season spanning 21 innings, LaSorsa pitched to a 3.86 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 13:8 K:BB. He should work as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen while he's up with the Rays.
