• Left-hander Matt Purke, the Nationals' No. 9-ranked prospect according to MLB.com, made his debut with Class A Advanced Potomac on Wednesday and pitched five solid innings against Winston-Salem. He gave up one run on four hits, walked two and struck out two.

Washington's third-round pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft had a 2.48 ERA over six starts at Class A Hagerstown after shoulder problems limited him to three games last season, his first as a professional.
