Nationals activate Drew Storen
WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals activated right-handed reliever Drew Storen from the disabled list and designated outfielder Rick Ankiel for assignment on Thursday.
Storen, who had 43 saves last season, had surgery in April to remove bone chips from his right elbow and hasn't pitched this season.
Ankiel, who turned 33 on Thursday, batted .228 with five home runs and 15 RBIs.
Washington has eight pitchers in the bullpen and four position players on the bench after the moves.
