Info on Andres Machado who was called up yesterday as the 27th man.

Here's more:

Signed as an amateur free agent by the Kansas City Royals in 2010, Machado made his MLB debut with the club in 2017, with two appearances, but he hasn’t pitched in a major league game since. He signed a minor league deal with the Nationals this winter, and before he got called up, the right-hander had a 0.96 ERA in 9 1⁄3 innings with two walks and 12 Ks in seven outings at Triple-A Rochester.

“He had a sub-1.00 ERA, he went to go pitch for Team Venezuela, we just got him back, so it will be nice to see — if we get him a chance to pitch today, it will be nice to see what he can do,” Martinez said. “He’s a right-handed [pitcher], throws hard, has good movement on his fastball, has a good slider, so I’m interested to see how he does here if we can get him into a game.”
