Stammen was sent down to Double-A Akron on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Stammen pitched in three games with Triple-A Columbus over the past two weeks, allowing two earned runs and four hits while striking out eight batters over three innings of work. The 32-year-old missed most of the 2015 season with a torn right flexor tendon and could potentially make it back to the big league time by the time the second half of the season starts July 15.

Stammen (forearm) has progressed to throwing off a mound at 75 percent intensity, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reliever has been throwing 35-pitch bullpens of late, mixing in all of his pitches as he continues to build up strength in his forearm after sitting out for most of 2015 with a torn right flexor tendon. He'll likely continue to stick with bullpen sessions for the time being until he can increase his intensity and pitch count. Once he's able to ramp up to full strength, Stammen figures to begin facing live batters. Still, he appears to be on track for a return on the other side of the All-Star break.

EDGE Analysis

Stammen has been throwing off a mound since February 23, so it's good to see that the veteran pitcher is steadily progressing through his rehabilitation process. That being said, he's still likely t miss the beginning of the season.

Stammen signed a minor league contract with the Indians that includes an invitation to spring training.

EDGE Analysis

Stammen sat out for most of 2015 with a forearm injury, which led to the Nationals non-tendering the 31-year-old. That being said, he has had some decent numbers out of the bullpen during his career, posting a 2.93 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with nearly a strikeout per inning from 2012 through 2014. If he can be healthy, Stammen could prove to be a nice under-the-radar pickup for Cleveland.

Stammen was not tendered a contract by the Nationals on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Stammen suffered a forearm injury in April and was shelved for the rest of the 2015 season. His impact for the year was very minimal and the Nationals decided to not bring the 31-year-old back for the 2016 season. Depending on his health coming in to next year, there will be many teams that will be interested in Stammen.

Stammen has been transferred to the 60-day DL, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

He's expected to miss the entire season, so the move simply opens up a space on the 40-man roster for Joe Ross.

Stammen (forearm) has been diagnosed with a torn right flexor tendon, and he will likely miss the remainder of the season, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports.

Given that he needs surgery to repair the flexor tendon, Stammen will almost certainly miss the rest of the season. He got off to a solid start this year, but the Nationals shouldn't have much trouble finding another middle reliever.

The Nationals placed Stammen on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with right forearm stiffness.

Stammen pitched four of the last five days, but his sore forearm will sideline him at least until the last day of April, and possibly beyond. Taylor Jordan was called up from Triple-A Syracuse to replace Stammen in the Nationals' bullpen.
