Dan Leatherman Is A Senator

While he may have political ambitions, Dan Leatherman is quite happy to be a Senator…a Harrisburg Senator.  I recently covered our three Washington Nationals organization clients in this post.  Here was the blurb on Leatherman:

One class below Ata [Atahualpa Severino], and a former teammate of Severino, Dan Leatherman has been the staple of the High A Potomac Nationals.  No reliever on the team has logged more innings this year than Dan, who has a total of 69.2 after last night’s performance.  Last night, he came into a tie game in the 8th inning, and pitched 2 innings of no hit, no walk, no run ball, to keep the P-Nats in contention.  Dan also had 3 strikeouts.  The P-Nats won the game in the 11th.  The P-Nats have relied on Dan all season.  He has finished 20 of the 41 games he has appeared in and boasts a very impressive 1.25 WHIP.  His K/BB ratio is also right about 3/1 and Dan’s ERA is a respectable 3.23.  Dan also has 5 saves to go along with his 6-1 record.  While we have been hoping to see Dan called up to AA Harrisburg for quite a while, we know that it is just a matter of time before he is given a chance at a higher level and impresses with that team, as well.

“A matter of time” happened to only be two days.  Earlier today, Dan was notified that he should pack his bags, because he is heading to Harrisburg to join the AA Senators.  Honestly, this promotion could not have been granted to a more deserving guy.  Go show them your stuff in AA ball, Dan!
