Nationals get RHP Carpenter from Yankees for minor leaguer

MILWAUKEE (AP) The Washington Nationals have acquired right-handed reliever David Carpenter from the New York Yankees for minor league second baseman Tony Renda.

The Nationals announced the deal Thursday before their game at the Milwaukee Brewers.

Washington also transferred outfielder Nate McClouth from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL and the team said it would make another move later Thursday to make room on the 25-man roster for Carpenter.

Carpenter was designated for assignment by the Yankees on June 3, after going 0-1 with a 4.82 ERA in 22 games this season.

He is 11-11 with a 2.73 ERA in 210 career appearances for four major league clubs.

Renda was a second-round draft pick in 2012.
