The Washington Nationals reinstated right-hander Wander Suero from the 10-day injured list and optioned right-hander Paolo Espino to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday.

Suero, 29, missed 21 games because of a left oblique strain. In eight relief appearances before he went on the IL on April 18, he had a 1.42 ERA with one earned run in 6 1/3 innings.

Espino, 34, is 0-1 with a 1.64 ERA in six games (one start) this season for the Nationals.
