First off, happy Father’s Day to all who celebrate. The teams will have baby blue themed caps for the day, and some other tributes on cleats, gloves, and arm sleeves. For the ceremonial first pitch, the Nats will have their children throwing out pitches to their dads.
The Washington Nationals lost their 16th game of the season out of their bullpen. They also have 16 blown saves. The bullpen recently had two DFAs with Erasmo Ramirez and Andres Machado, but it was Chad Kuhl and Thaddeus Ward who turned a tie game into a 5-2 loss, and the fifth straight loss this season against the Marlins.
Once again, the Nats look for a stopper, and on this Father’s Day — the Nats look to their most fatherly pitcher in Patrick Corbin. He is the veteran of this staff, and the leader of the crew. While he no longer has his ace stuff, he has been known to spin a gem or two.
The full bullpen should be available today except for maybe Jordan Weems who just did a back-to-back.
Here is how they rank:
