WASHINGTON -- More than a week after being designated for assignment, infielder Greg Dobbs will return to the Nationals organization after accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Syracuse.

Dobbs, 36 and who needs two hits to reach 100 pinch hits in a career, was 6-for-28 [.214] with Washington with two RBIs before he was designated for assignment on June 25th.

Dobbs joined the Nationals on May 12th after he was released by the Marlins six days before. Dobbs is best remembered for being part of a Phillies team that won a World Series title in 2008.
