After spending most of this year in the minors Zach Duke pitched well for the Nationals as a September call-up and Amanda Comak of the Washington Times reports they’ve re-signed the left-hander to a major-league deal.
Prior to joining the Nationals’ bullpen down the stretch Duke had been starting at Triple-A and 168 of his 189 career appearances have come as a starter, but the 30-year-old former top prospect seems most likely to spend 2013 as a middle reliever.
