Following an extra inning win over the Reds today, the Washington Nationals announced they have designated outfielder Brett Carroll for assignment (via Amanda Comak of the Washington Times). The room is being made to open up a roster spot for outfielder Rick Ankiel, who is being activated off the disabled list.

Carroll, 29, was a bench option for the Nationals this far into the year and only got one plate appearance in four games played. If I had to guess, I would say the 29-year-old accepts the assignment to Class Triple-A Syracuse, but that's just a guess.

Meanwhile, Ryan Ankiel return means he'll become the Nationals’ starting center fielder and that'll move Roger Bernadina to the bench, writes Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. Ankiel suffered a tight left quadriceps injury that put him on the disabled list during spring training, but the Nationals said they will use him every day as soon as he returns.
