    It looks like they put Mattheus on the 40-man though?

    He was on Colorado’s 40-man so had to be added or put through waivers, I believe. Since he’s out long-term, then can move him to 60-day once they need a roster spot

    Looks like they still only have 39 on the 40-man? Is that true?

    Periculum: The Nationals currently hold 41 players on the 40-man roster – T.Young & Bernardina are both on the 60-day DL list, so 39 players net against the 40-man cap. Mattheus (or Flores) can only go to the 60-day if the team fills the 41st spot first.
