Nats Acquire Cesar Izturis

The Nats have acquired Cesar Izturis from the Brewers, a source says. Mark DeRosa fighting a groin injury. Nats needed middle infield help.

Thoughts?

Le sigh.

This year, .235/.248/.333 with an OPS+ of 53 so he basically cannot be allowed in the batter's box.

Huh. I figured we would get someone but didn't expect Cesar Izturis.

We didn't get him to bat, he needs to be able to play middle infield defense if something happens to Espinosa/Lombardozzi.

Looks like a good defender and he puts the ball into play offensively. As long as he doesn't start or play a ton he is fine. Better than DeRosa.

puts the ball in play? What the freak is that supposed to mean? Who cares if in play means straight to an opponents glove?

I hope they don't use him as late inning defensive replacement. Hopefully just a start once a week and only filling in the event of a bad injury

He doesn't strike out which means he should be able to handle bat - sacrifices, bunts, etc

"@NationalsPR: The Nationals today claimed SS Cesar Izturis off waivers from MIL. To make room, Mark DeRosa to 15-Day DL and Atahualpa Severino was DFA’d."

What did we give up? Did we just take on his salary?

exactly right, and his D is why rizzo claimed him, he's not playing everyday so the numbers don't matter that much

Itzuris' acquisition was a straight waiver claim, not a trade, so the Nationals aren't giving up any players for him. They'll only be responsible for the remainder of his $850,000 salary this season.

Needed the MI insurance with Desmond out. Logical move with him on the wire.
