With the Nationals and Braves set to begin their second series of the 2014 season Friday night, Atlanta could be without one of their best players.
After beating the Miami Marlins on Thursday to secure their second series sweep of this young season, the Nationals moved to 7-2 through nine games on the year.
This time last year, Aaron Barrett was one week into the job as closer of the Harrisburg Senators. He was still searching for his first career save at the Double-A level.
The Nationals completed their sweep of the Miami Marlins on Thursday in what ended up a 7-1 blowout in the box score.
