The Washington Nationals cut Alcides Escobar last night to make room for Luke Voit who the team got as the sixth player from the San Diego Padres in their blockbuster deal this week.
Voit is in the lineup and batting third tonight as his new team opens a four game series in Philadelphia. Nelson Cruz is on the bench tonight with Joey Meneses.
