Braves Vs. Nationals: Lefty Reliever Mike Gonzalez Called Up For Sunday's Contest

It appears the Washington Nationals have added some left-handed help to their bullpen for Sunday's contest against the Atlanta Braves. Via William Ladson of MLB.com:

Gonzalez was signed in early May by Washington to add bullpen depth. The veteran 34-year-old lefty has 56 career saves and posted a 4.39 ERA in 53 1/3 innings for the Orioles and Rangers last season.

The promotion of Gonzalez likely means right-handed reliever Ryan Perry is headed down to the minors.
