Tampa Bay Acquires Minor League Pitcher Matt Buschmann From Washington

The Tampa Bay Rays have made a minor organizational move on Monday, acquiring minor league pitcher Matt Buschmann from the Washington Nationals. The Rays acquire the pitcher without having to give up any players in return.

Bushmann was a 15th round pick of the San Diego Padres in the 2006 Amateur Draft. The Nationals acquired Buschmann in the Rule 5 draft during the offseason following five years in the San Diego Padres system. He pitched relatively well until being promoted to the AAA level in 2011 when he was touched up to the tune of a 7.31 ERA in 15 starts and 20 overall appearances. He had yet to make his first appearance for the Harrisburg Senators in the Nationals system.
