Designated for assignment last Thursday by the Nationals, outfielder Eury Perez has been claimed off waivers by the New York Yankees.
The Nats enter their final week before October with a pitching staff to sort out. They also need to find out where Zim will play.
The Atlanta Braves have fired general manager Frank Wren.
With Ryan Zimmerman needing to move to first base, Adam LaRoche knows the Nationals are unlikely to bring him back in 2015. Which leaves him even more motivated to win a World Series in D.C. in 2014.
With the Braves' official elimination from the 2014 playoffs, a report has surfaced that big changes could be on the way.
