This is the opportunity of a lifetime for Tommy Romero who gets the spot start for the Washington Nationals as the 29th man in this doubleheader. He had his first opportunity with the Tampa Bay Rays earlier in the season and it was a mixed bag of results.
Romero became a 40-man crunch casualty and was DFA’d by the Rays in August and claimed by the Nats in waivers. If he does well for the Nats tonight, he could figure into the team’s future plans.
