Who is Luis Atilano?

Luis A. Atilano is a Puerto Rican professional baseball pitcher with the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. Selected by the Atlanta Braves in the first round of the 2003 amateur draft, Atilano was traded to the Washington Nationals on August 31, 2006, for veteran utilityman Daryle Ward.

Atilano spent the beginning of the 2006 season pitching for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans of the high A-level Carolina League, where he accrued a win-loss record of 6–7 and an ERA of 4.50 in 18 starts and 1 relief appearance. After struggling at the beginning of the season, he went 3–0 with a 2.89 ERA in July. He pitched two complete games for Myrtle Beach during 2006, but an elbow injury suffered in early August ended his season.

Atilano was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse, by the Nationals, to replace injured Jason Marquis on April 22, 2010. He allowed one run on five hits in a 5–1 Nationals victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 23, 2010, his first major league start and first major league win. He started off the season well, going 5–1 in his first six decisions—which included consecutive victories over Tim Lincecum and Roy Oswalt.
