Cory Sullivan, who was signed to a major league contract before spring training, is en route to Washington D.C. to take the roster spot of Fernando Nieve. Nieve, to make room, was placed on the 15-day DL.
Sullivan, with the Buffalo Bisons the entire year, was batting .290 AVG / .352 OBP with 16 doubles, two home runs, and 24 RBIs in 85 games.
According to Bart Hubbuch, Jerry Manuel said Sullivan was promoted over Nick Evans because Sullivan is more versatile. Sullivan can play every outfield position, with most of his time coming in center field.
