Nats Sign Towers

The Nats signed right-handed pitcher, Josh Towers, to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. Towers is 31 years old with a seven year major league career between Baltimore and Toronto. He has an overall record of 45-55 with a career 4.96 ERA. However, he spent all of 2008 with Triple-A Colorado Springs in which he struggled with a 6-7 record and a 6.27 ERA in 31 games. Towers’ best year came in 2005 with Toronto in which he started 33 games with a record of 13-12 and a 3.71 ERA. He will have to perform very well to earn a spot in the Nationals’ rotation to make the opening day roster. High expectations for Towers don’t exist, which is why this has the potential to be a solid pick-up for the Nats.
