Jesus Flores

  1. Dodgers release Ramon Castro

    Mar 18, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Ramon Castro

    Today’s the day to release veteran catchers on minor-league deals, apparently. This morning the Nationals released Chris Snyder, who immediately signed with the Angels, and now the Dodgers have released Ramon Castro. Castro didn’t play in the majors last season and at age 36 might be out of chances, although he was fairly productive in…

    Jan 16, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Jesus Flores

    Once upon a time Jesus Flores was a promising young catcher and part of the Nationals’ long-term plans, but injuries derailed his career and he was non-tendered after falling to third on the depth chart behind Kurt Suzuki and Wilson Ramos. Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that Flores has agreed to a minor-league…

    Geovany Soto

    Geovany Soto was a free agent for right around 48 hours. He re-signed with the Rangers on Sunday night after failing to come to terms on a deal and getting non-tendered on Friday. It’s a one-year pact with the dollars still unknown. Soto, who turns 30 in January, hit .199/.284/.347 in 176 at-bats for the…

    Aug 22, 2012, 6:13 AM EDT

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

  7. Stephen Strasburg returns after delay, fans 10 in win

    Aug 21, 2012, 10:35 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg

    A 51-minute rain delay couldn’t cool off Stephen Strasburg, as the Nationals’ ace allowed one run in six innings and struck out 10 to beat the Braves on Tuesday night. Ian Desmond and Jesus Flores homered off Paul Maholm in the 4-1 game. It was Strasburg’s fifth double-digit strikeout game of the season. He improved…

    Jesus Flores AP

    The Nationals acquired catcher Kurt Suzuki from the Athletics yesterday in exchange for minor league catcher David Freitas. Suzuki is expected to take over the starting catcher gig from Jesus Flores, who has really struggled carrying the load since Wilson Ramos suffered a season-ending knee injury in May. Flores was asked about the trade after…

  9. Nationals acquire catcher Kurt Suzuki from A’s

    Aug 3, 2012, 2:41 PM EDT

    Kurt Suzuki

    By acquiring George Kottaras from the Brewers last week the A’s signaled that Kurt Suzuki would lose playing time behind the plate, but today they took that several steps further by trading Suzuki to the Nationals. In return the A’s receive Single-A catching prospect David Freitas, who was a 15th-round pick in 2010 and has…

  10. Nationals, Rangers talks for Yorvit Torrealba go nowhere

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    Yorvit Torrealba AP

    UPDATE: So much for that: Kilgore now reports that the Nationals talked to the Rangers about Torrealba, but “one person involved says ‘it doesn’t look like a fit.’” ========== Yorvit Torrealba became expendable in Texas once the Rangers acquired Geovany Soto from the Cubs last night and after being designated for assignment he’s expected to…

  11. Nationals get last laugh as Joel Peralta takes loss while appealing suspension

    Jun 22, 2012, 10:37 AM EDT

    Joel Peralta

    Yesterday afternoon MLB handed down an eight-game suspension to Joel Peralta for having pine tar on his glove, but the Rays reliever appealed and was available to pitch last night against the Nationals and the manager who ratted him out to umpires, Davey Johnson. And sure enough manager Joe Maddon brought Peralta into the sixth…

    Jun 5, 2012, 11:34 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper singled in Jesus Flores in the bottom of the 12th inning Tuesday to give the Nationals a 7-6 win over the Mets. The Mets took a 6-5 lead on Scott Hairston‘s homer in the top of the 12th, but the Nats came back to tie it on an Ian Desmond double before Harper…

  13. Another day, another Nationals catcher suffers major injury

    May 15, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Sandy Leon

    In losing starting catcher Wilson Ramos to a torn ACL over the weekend the Nationals turned to oft-injured backup Jesus Flores as their new starter behind the plate and called up Sandy Leon from Double-A to serve as their new backup. Leon made his big-league debut last night and the 23-year-old had to be carried…

    The MRI results are in for Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos, who was removed from Saturday’s 2-1 win over the Reds after twisting his right knee while fielding a passed ball. And it’s not good news. According to Amanda Comak of the Washington Times, a spokeswoman for Ramos revealed Sunday morning that the 24-year-old backstop needs…

    wilson ramos getty

    Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos got a cleat caught in the ground while attempting to field a passed ball in the seventh inning Saturday against the Reds, causing his right knee to twist in an unnatural way. Ramos kept all weight off the knee as he was carried — by a trainer on each side —…

  16. Angels and Nationals should consider a smaller trade

    May 11, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Alberto Callaspo

    Many are trying to set the Nationals up with Peter Bourjos after they lost another starting outfielder to injury in Jayson Werth over the weekend. That’d be nice and all, but the artillery is lacking to pull it off. Instead, I’m thinking about a smaller deal here, if the two teams have in fact talked:…

  17. Running down the rosters: Washington Nationals

    Feb 23, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Michael Morse, Jayson Werth, Ryan Zimmerman

    The Nationals may have disappointed some by failing to make a big run at the top three free agents, but a vastly improved rotation could make them surprise contenders in the NL East. Rotation Gio Gonzalez – L Edwin Jackson – R Jordan Zimmermann – R John Lannan – L Stephen Strasburg – R Bullpen…

  18. Tracking the non-tenders: Joe Saunders, Luke Scott, Hong-Chih Kuo

    Here’s the official list of players non-tendered prior to the Monday midnight deadline: American League Baltimore: OF/DH Luke Scott, LHP Jo-Jo Reyes, RHP Willie Eyre Scott went from hitting .284/.368/.535 during an excellent 2010 season to .220/.301/.402 in 209 at-bats during a 2011 season shortened by shoulder surgery. The Orioles could re-sign him for significantly less…

  19. Ivan Rodriguez won’t re-sign with Nationals, eyes backup role

    Dec 8, 2011, 11:31 AM EDT

    Ivan Rodriguez

    Agent Scott Boras told reporters at the winter meetings yesterday that Ivan Rodriguez won’t be re-signing with the Nationals, saying: “I think their plan at the moment excludes him.” Rodriguez backed up Wilson Ramos this year, but the Nationals still have Jesus Flores around and there are a couple intriguing catcher prospects coming up through…

    maldonado getty wide

    From beat writer Bill Ladson of MLB.com comes word that the Nationals have re-signed catcher Carlos Maldonado to a minor league contract. Maldonado hasn’t appeared in a major league game since the 2010 season and posted an ugly-looking .234/.361/.342 slash line with one home run and 12 RBI in 38 games this past year at the…

  21. McCourt: Divorce not affecting club's finances

    Mar 6, 2010, 9:19 PM EDT

    Dodgers owner Frank McCourt told the Associated Press Saturday afternoon that his divorce from wife Jamie is not affecting the club’s day-to-day operations or finances.  “The vast majority of it has nothing to do with baseball,” McCourt said Saturday in a visit with reporters.  “The fans know, I believe, where I stand in terms of…

  22. "No chance" Flores plays before end of spring

    Mar 6, 2010, 10:25 AM EDT

    That’s what Jesus Flores told Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider when asked if he’d be ready to appear in a game before the end of the spring. Flores is currently rehabbing from offseason shoulder surgery and has only progressed to playing catch from 120 feet. As the Grapefruit League schedule begins, he’s understandably deflated: “It’s…
