Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez has left the Nationals' Double-A Harrisburg team after he was told he wouldn't be in line for a September call-up.

Hernandez, the half-brother of current Nats pitcher Livan Hernandez, was signed to a minor-league contract in July. In six appearances with Harrisburg, Hernandez was 1-1 with a  1.86 ERA.

"His expectation was to be a September call-up," Nationals GM Mike Rizzo told . "And just with the roster spot we're in and the additional guys we're going to put on the roster, it was just something I felt wasn't warranted at this time."
