Designated decision: Scott Hatteberg
Scott Hatteberg, acquired from the Reds in a previous trade for Royce Clayton has been a bitter dissapointment in Washington and may soon suffer the same fate as ex-teammate Neifi Perez.
Hatteberg is hitting .194 in 20 games with Washington this season, he had been used primarily as a pinch-hitter and defensive replacement but now he gets his shot at the DH role.
If he does not produce, you may see a minor-league prospect come up and him go down.
Tony Blanco is a greate candidate for the DH role, Josh Labandeira and Rene Rivera also.
