Does anyone know anything about this guy? Is he up for the season or is he just a fill in for Patterson?

Michael O'Connor had a pretty good 2005 in A ball. With a 3-1 K/BB ratio and fewer hits than innings pitched. Good enough to earn a promotion to AAA to begin 2006, where he managed to post a 2.41 ERA in 4 starts (18 2/3 IP, 16 HA, 20 K).
Not regarded as a top prospect, the 24 yr old O'Connor has made quite impression in two starts for the Nationals.
Patterson is due back soon, but O'Connor may be able to stick with the big club. It will be hard to send him back down if he continues to excel, and he is certainly a better option in the rotation than the struggling Zach Day.
