The Washington Nationals today sold the contract of Jamey Carroll to the Colorado Rockies for $300,000.00. Nationals Vice President and General Manager Jim Bowden made the announcement.
"I'd like to thank Jamey for his long-standing and numerous contributions to the Nationals/Expos franchise," said Bowden. "During his time here, Jamey was the ultimate teammate, whose integrity and work ethic were contagious. We wish Jamey and his family nothing but the best."
Carroll hit .251 in 113 games last season for Washington. However, with the acquisitions of middle infielders Royce Clayton, Marlon Anderson, Damian Jackson, as well as the emergence of Brendan Harris, Carroll became expendable.
