Notes: Escobar will take his rehab to Triple-A Columbus after the All-Star break. Joining him in Columbus will be RHSP Collin Balester.

Cool.  I bet we seem him, along with a TON of other pitchers, called up when rosters expand.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the big leagues in he pitches well. I think Fruto will come up first (assuming he replaces Bacsik or someone gets hurt), but I like what I see from Balester.

You should keep an eye on the Nats 40-man roster, because only players already on, or who's contracts were purchased and then added to the 40-man roster are eligible to be called up. Right now there are four empty spots that the Nats could fill with players form Columbus or Harrisburg, or even with players signed of traded for.
