Cedeno was traded to the Rays on Monday for cash considerations.

Cedeno will now be on the Rays' 40-man roster with the trade, providing the club with some organizational depth in the bullpen. He'll likely report to the team's Triple-A Durham affiliate, and will end up pushing someone off the 40-man roster in a corresponding move.

Cedeno was traded from the Nationals to the Dodgers for cash considerations Wednesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Cedeno was designated for assignment Tuesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Cedeno made the Opening Day roster, but he has already been charged with a pair of blown saves. He'll be replaced in the bullpen by right-hander Rafael Martin, leaving Matt Thornton as the Nationals' only southpaw. Given his excellent numbers for Triple-A Syracuse in 2014, Cedeno could draw interest from other teams. If he does find a new home, he'll likely still be used in low or medium-leverage situations.

Cedeno has been removed from the Nationals' 25-man roster, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports.

The southpaw probably also lost his spot on the 40-man, as he's being replaced on the big-league roster by right-handed Rafael Martin. Both Cedeno and Martin put up dominant numbers out of the bullpen for Triple-A Syracuse last season, but Cedeno already has two blown saves in the majors this year. Assuming the lefty is designated for assignment, he could draw interest from other teams.

Cedeno has earned a spot on the Nationals' Opening Day roster, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Cedeno's chances of making the roster dramatically increased following the Nationals' trade of Jerry Blevins, and Sunday's announcement makes it official. He'll serve in middle relief for manager Matt Williams, limiting his value from a fantasy perspective.

Monday's trade of Jerry Blevins increases Cedeno's chances of making the Opening Day roster.

If he does head north with the Nats, Cedeno would slot in as the second left-hander in the bullpen and would have limited fantasy value, although he does have some impressive strikeout numbers in the minors, including 57 K's in 39.1 innings at Triple-A last season. He's also posted a 9:4 K:BB ratio in nine innings this spring.

Cedeno was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

The 28-year-old lefty has turned in another fine season at the Triple-A level, with a 2.29 ERA and 0.86 WHIP across 39.1 innings. Moreover, Cedeno's held opposing lefties to a minuscule .130 batting average, and while he's been good against righties as well (.180), he may be deployed primarily as a specialist over the final weeks.
