Erick Fedde, the Nats' top pitching prospect, to start Wednesday | | Yoga Beauty Health
Erick Fedde will make his fifth major league start Wednesday. (Toni L. Sandys/The Washington Post) NEW YORK — The Nationals plan on recalling right-hander Erick Fedde from Class AAA Syracuse to start against the Yankees on Wednesday, Manager Dave Martinez announced after the club's 3-0 loss Tuesday night. The team didn't announce a corresponding move. It'll be the second major league start this season for the 25-year-old Fedde, the Nationals' top pitching prospect. After allowing 16 runs in his first three career starts last season, the right-hander surrendered three runs in 5 2/3 innings in a spot start against the Padres on May 23. Most importantly, Fedde's velocity, which dipped last season before he was shut down in September, was back to normal, in the mid-90s. He then returned to Syracuse, where he has posted a 4.76 ERA in 11 starts this season. The Nationals need a starter Wednesday after putting Stephen Strasburg on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with right shoulder
