• Cesar Izturis passed through waivers and has elected to become a free agent. He played in five games for Washington and went 2-for-4 with four runs scored. He was claimed off waivers from the Brewers on Aug. 6. The Nationals had hoped Izturis would take some time off, sharpen his skills, and then they would have brought him back to the big leagues on Sept. 1.
