His throwing elbow still not 100 percent, Sean Burnett is again unavailable out of the Nationals' bullpen for Wednesday night's game against the Cubs.
All year they've seen their pitching staff lauded for dominant performances and lifting them to the best record in the sport.
He last pitched five days ago, tossing his second consecutive shutout for Class AAA Syracuse, so John Lannan would normally have been primed to return to the mound tonight.
With the minor-league season now complete, the Nationals added one more September call-up, promoting outfielder Corey Brown from Class AAA Syracuse before tonight's game against the Cubs.
If you were out of town over the holiday weekend, you sure missed some eventful stuff at the ballpark.
