A retired U.S. Army officer now focused on business development and government affairs, Alphonso Maldon serves as the CEO of Partnership Strategies Consulting in Washington, DC. In his free time, Alphonso Maldon enjoys activities such as reading, fishing, traveling, and cheering on his local MLB team, the Washington Nationals.
In a recently released statement, the Washington Nationals announced that they have selected the contract of Matt Albers from Triple-A Syracuse. Now entering his 12th Major League season, Albers, a right-handed pitcher out of San Jacinto College, was drafted by the Houston Astros in 2001 but didn’t make his MLB debut until 2006. Since then, he has played for seven teams, including the White Sox in Chicago, where he spent the last two seasons.
Over the course of his career, Albers has pitched in over 600 innings and maintained an earned run average of 4.38. During 2017 spring training with the Nationals, he played in 10 games and didn’t allow a single run. Along with selecting Albers, the Nationals designated pitcher Jeremy Guthrie for assignment.
