Nationals released RHPs Clay Hensley, Martires Arias and Greg Holt, LHP Casey Selsor, SS Kyle Attl, and 2Bs Taylor Wrenn and Drew Rossi.
The fantasy relevance of the six outside of Hensley can be summed up by Rotoworld having done a combined zero previous updates on them. Hensley didn't pitch in the majors last season, posting a 3.92 ERA in 19 Triple-A appearances before finishing out the year in independent ball. He should be able to snatch up a middle relief gig at the Triple-A level, while the rest will scramble to offer their services as organizational soldiers.
