Rendon, Sandy Leon and Nate Karns head to Double-A Harrisburg and Eury Perez to Triple-A Syracuse. The Nats also re-assigned Matt Skole, Will Rhymes and Pat McCoy to minor league camp.
"[Johnson] just told me just go back to work," Karns said. "He told me that I have a bright future. ... Anytime you get to show more than a stat line, get to know me as a person or see me play, I think that'll help out in any regard."
Karns said he was a little disappointed that upper right leg tightness limited what he was able to do during the latter part of his time in camp, but the right-hander still felt the experience was positive.
