Washington also claimed left-hander Roddery Munoz of waivers from National League East rivals the Atlanta Braves and selected him for Triple-A Rochester. The Nationals reinstated left-handed starter Patrick Corbin from the paternity list, recalled left-handed Joe La Sorsa from Triple-A and opted for right-hander Joan Adon to Triple-A
Harvey was diagnosed with a right elbow injury. His move to IL is retroactive until Sunday.
Harvey, 28, has a 3-4 record with nine saves and a 3.12 ERA in 39 games in the Nationals’ bullpen this season. He had matched a total of 45 strikeouts last season, a career high. In five seasons with the Baltimore Orioles (2019-21) and Nationals (2022-23), Harvey has achieved a 2.96 ERA
Munoz, 23, has never played at major league level; he was called up during the month of June but saw no game action. He was recently ranked the No. 1 prospect. 22nd in the Atlanta farm system by Baseball America.
In 22 games (four starts) split between Triple-A, Double-A, and Rookie ball this season, Munoz is 3-3 with a 3.89 ERA.
Corbin, who turns 34 on Wednesday, is 6-10 with a 4.89 ERA this season. But in his final start before going on the paternity list, he bowled seven innings of one-run ball, spreading five hits in a win over the Texas Rangers on July 9.
La Sorsa, 25, made his major league debut earlier this season for the Tampa Bay Rays. Nationals voted him out of the June 8 waiver. In seven combined appearances, he has bowled for a 9.72 ERA (8 1/3 innings)
Adon, 24, has appeared in two games for Washington this season and has a 5.40 ERA. He went 1-12 in 14 starts in 2022.
