Three weeks after demoting Drew Storen to Triple-A the Nationals have recalled the former closer.

Storen posted an ugly 5.68 ERA in six Triple-A appearances, but he also had a fantastic 11/0 K/BB ratio in 6.1 innings and finished his stint in the International League with three straight scoreless outings.

He seems unlikely to be thrown right back into late-inning situations, but his 43/13 K/BB ratio in 42 innings before the demotion always suggested Storen would eventually regain a key bullpen role.

    Welcome back, Drew. Now take care of the 7th inning, or righty batters, or whatever else you are told. :) We got a little baby streak going, and we’d like to keep it up!

    You jinxed it. Soriano gives up 3 run shot. There goes that streak
