Shawn Kelley’s outburst on the mound got him booted from the Nationals.
Washington designated Kelley for assignment Wednesday, a day after he threw his glove to the ground and glared into the dugout while working the ninth inning of a 25-4 blowout of the Mets.
Kelley entered the game with Washington leading 25-1. He appeared agitated and was working quickly, and he had already allowed a run when the plate umpire warned him to slow down. After the warning, Kelley gave up a two-run homer to Austin Jackson, prompting the outburst.
