Nationals' 2011 Roster Finalized With Alberto Gonzalez Trade To Padres

The Nationals have finalized their 2011 25-man roster, a couple days before they had to do so. The team announced it has traded infielder Alberto Gonzalez, a potential candidate to make the team, to the San Diego Padres for 24-year-old minor league pitcher Erik Davis and cash considerations. This cements the 25-man roster.

Gonzalez had a nice Spring Training and had his moments as a utility infielder, but was out of options and therefore out of luck. Davis is a pitcher that went 14-3 with a 3.52 ERA in Single-A and Double-A last season.

The move means veteran Joey Cora will be on the roster as the utility infielder. Here is the final 25-man roster.
