New Orleans starter Sun-Woo Kim was called up to DC and lefty reliever C.J. Nitkowski (above), just released by the Pirates, was signed by the Nationals today, both part of 9 players worth of roster moves in the wake of Washington being swept by the Reds.

No word yet on whether or not massage chairs have been banned from the RFK clubhouse, though with 16 players currently on the DL, maybe the Nationals might need to exchange trade one for an extra whirpool.
