John Patterson leaves Washington Nationals

On March 20, 2008, the Washington Nationals dismissed starting pitcher John Patterson in view of health problems.

In 2007 Patterson started the year dismally, going 1-5 in seven starts with an ERA of 7.47. He went back on the DL on May 7, with elbow inflamation. He didn't pitch the rest of the season, eventually opting for surgery in September.

Patterson had a breakout season in 2005, posting a 9-7 record while setting career bests in ERA (3.13), innings pitched (198.3) and strikeouts (185) in 31 starts. On August 4 of that year, he pitched his first career complete game shutout against the Los Angeles Dodgers, with Washington winning that game 7-0.


He announced his intention to create a news service called "Pravda," which means "truth" in Russian. Well, we are Pravda. The Pravda.Ru website has been working professionally in Russia since 1999
