WASHINGTON (AP) -The Washington Nationals got Class-A batting champion Andrew Lefave from the Brewers on Friday to complete the Sept. 4 deal that sent reliever Ray King to Milwaukee.
The 23-year-old Lefave is an outfielder and first baseman who hit .345 with 17 homers and 79 RBIs in 112 games in the South Atlantic League this season.
Lefave signed last year with the Brewers as a non-drafted free agent. He throws and hits left-handed.
