In 113 career starts, all with Washington, the 27-year-old right-hander is 43-35 with a 3.40 ERA.

Storen was 4-2 with a 4.52 ERA in 68 games last season. He was the club's closer in 2011, finishing fourth in the NL with 43 saves in 48 chances, then missed the first part of 2012 with elbow problems before making 37 appearances later that season.

In 232 career big league games, all with the Nationals, the 26-year-old righty is 17-10 with 55 saves and a 3.40 ERA.
