Former Stone Crabs starting pitcher Felipe Rivero has been called up to the majors by the Washington Nationals. He will be joining the Nationals for the series against the Phillies as the Nationals needed a lefty to combat a Phillies lineup heavy with left handed hitters. Rivero was with Triple-A Syracuse prior to his promotion.
Rivero was with the Stone Crabs in 2013. This is his first call to the majors.
