the bright side is, i hope my Blue Jays pick him up

Kissimmee, FL (Sports Network) - The Washington Nationals have released outfielder Elijah Dukes.

The team announced the news Wednesday in a brief release, which did not provide a reason for the move.

Dukes, 25, was expected to be the Nationals' starting right fielder this season. The Washington Post reported on its website that manager Jim Riggleman said it was strictly a baseball decision and that the team liked some of its other options for the position.

Last year with the club, Dukes batted .250 with eight home runs and 58 RBI in 107 games.

Over three major league seasons with Tampa Bay and Washington, Dukes has hit .242 with 31 homers and 123 RBI in 240 games.

On the bright side.... this provides an excellent opportunity for Dukes to go to a better team.

C'mon Jays, They could use him to push Snider, create more competition.
