(AP Photo. There he is! Livan Hernandez is back to eat innings, drive up concession sales at Nationals Park for the final month of the season.)
"We looked at where we were at with our young starting pitching and we got to the facts that we're running out of innings with some of these young guys and I refuse to push them past their limits. And Livan was available. We discussed him with our player personnel people and he's a good guy in the clubhouse, he's got some friends here on the ballclub, and he's nothing else but a workhorse and a reliable arm to get us some innings and get us through the rest of the season."

Save the Children!
Welcome Back Livo!
Livo comes home, a year later than we would've liked.
Good luck tonight. And good luck with that lawsuit.
