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.
