Nationals Trade Blake Treinen And Prospects For Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle

17 July 2017, 12:16 | Ross Houston

Nationals aim for four-game sweep of Reds (Jul 17, 2017)

A's trade Doolittle in 5-player deal with Nationals

Left-handed pitching prospect Jesus Luzardo and third baseman Sheldon Neuse will be heading to Oakland. This appears more appropriate for the 36-year-old who now owns a 2.06 ERA through almost 40 innings. He has not allowed any of the seven inherited runners to score in his past 13 appearances and has held opponents to a.188 batting average.

Madson has a 2.06 ERA this season and 86 career saves as a reliever so he'd be the most likely player to close with Doolittle potentially setting him up.

The Athletics may be left with more to desire, they are going into a rebuilding stage and they did acquire prospects, but neither prospect they got is in the top 100.

Rizzo said he wasn't sure when Madson and Doolittle would be joining the Nationals.

NL East-leading Washington has a strong rotation led by Max Scherzer (11-5), Stephen Strasburg (9-3) and Gio Gonzalez (8-4) but has converted just 22 of 36 save chances. He was drafted by the Nationals in the 3rd round of the 2016 draft.

The move indicates the Nationals realize their contention window is right now.

Doolittle and Madson are no strangers to Nationals trade rumors.

The Nationals are hoping Doolittle and Madson can help them avoid continuing a trend of letting games get away of them. "They both have had arm problems, so it could be both of them".

Daniel Murphy, who homered twice on Sunday, was also excited about the new additions. The Nationals have six losses when leading entering the ninth inning, most in baseball and, they now trail the Dodgers by eight games for home-field advantage. "We gave up one quality player and got two".

Treinen, who will go to the Athletics in this trade, started the season as Nationals closer but lasted just two weeks in that role before being removed by manager Dusty Baker. The 36-year-old Madson is signed through 2018 and is owed $7.6 million per year. Doolittle, a left-hander, will be under team control through 2020 with a $4.35 million salary for next season and then $6 million options in 2019 and '20.

Perhaps even more important for the Nationals is that Madson and Doolittle won't be half-season rentals. MLB.com ranked Neuse as the system's sixth-best prospect thanks to his well-rounded set of skills and potential to become a regular at third.
