More On Leatherman Moving To Potomac

Anthony Oppermann, writing for the Potomac Nationals, had this to say about Dan Leatherman’s call up from Low A Hagerstown to High A Potomac:

The Potomac Nationals today announced their playoff roster for the Northern Division Championship series against the Wilmington Blue Rocks including the additions of Osvaldo Rodriguez, Cole Kimball and Dan Leatherman from the Low-A Hagerstown Suns.

In his first season in the Washington Nationals organization, Leatherman makes his Advanced-A debut with the P-Nats. After being signed as a minor league free agent this off-season, the 23-year-old was solid out of the bullpen with Hagerstown going 1-2 with a 2.68 ERA in 26 outings. The Frederick, Maryland, native struck out 62 batters in 50 1/3 innings while holding hitters to just a .222 average against.

Originally signed as a non-drafted free agent in 2006 by the Minnesota Twins following an open tryout at the Metrodome, the University of West Virginia product spent two seasons in the Twins farm system going a combined 11-5 with a 2.98 ERA in 70 games including one start at three levels.

All of us at Dynasty are extremely excited for Dan to make an appearance in the High A playoffs and wish him the best.

I cannot answer that question at this time. Dan’s contract with the Nationals organization expires 5 days after the completion of the World Series, at which time we will weigh his options. If he signs another deal with the Nationals, then you may see him with Potomac at the beginning of next season.
