Center fielder Lastings Milledge has been sent down to Triple-A Syracuse, the Nationals announced this afternoon.
As the lead-off hitter, Milledge has gotten off to a slow start, hitting just .167 with one run and one RBI in the Nationals first seven games.
He has four hits, all singles, and has struck out 10 times with a walk and an on-base percentage of just .231
Milledge's play in the field has been brought into question as well. Although he hasn't been charged with an error, Milledge has misplayed a few balls, which led to runs.
son of a !!!!
I just spent a ton for him in my NL only keeper and if he's not called up within 4 weeks I lose him completely.
