Kazmir put on DL again; Many Nationals move around
by Bob Timmermann
The Tampa Devil Rays, taking no chances with their best pitcher, placed Scott Kazmir on the disabled list with a sore left shoulder. J.P. Howell was called up from the minors to take his spot in the rotation.
Also, the Washington Nationals lost Alex Escobar to a shoulder separation and pitcher Kevin Gryboski replaced him. Earlier, the always popular Robert Fick came off the DL and Damian Jackson was designated for assignment. Don't be surprised if Jackson ends up making stop #3 with the Padres, who seem intent on piling up mediocre infielders like the Reds are piling up mediocre relievers.
