Nationals bolster bullpen with Oakland's Doolittle, Madson

Nationals bolster bullpen with Oakland's Doolittle, Madson

Infielder Sheldon Neuse and left-handed pitcher Jesus Luzardo are expected to be the Oakland prospects in the deal, according to Rosenthal. For the season, he has a 3.38 ERA, 0.656 WHIP and 31 strikeouts in 21.1 innings, and he has saved three of his four attempts. This creates a stronger window for World Series contention.

Treinen, 29, was originally a 7th round pick of the Oakland Athletics, before going to Washington in a three team deal that involved John Jaso and Mike Morse. In exchange, they get a power arm in Treinen that could become a closer down the road.

Washington manager Dusty Baker said he had talked to Madson and Doolittle by the time the Nationals finished their 14-4 win over the Reds on Sunday.

Both Madson and Doolittle were not likely on your fantasy radar because they did not get many save opportunities.

While it seems as though the A's have already been rebuilding the past few years, Beane said it has been frustrating to develop homegrown talent only to trade it away once they get successful, an issue he believes will no longer exist once a new stadium is in place.

"Really what's been missing the last 20 years is keeping these players", Beane said. As a lefty, he gives the Nationals some balance to their bullpen that they didn't have before.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals
Pittsburgh managed nine hits and a base on balls with Francisco Cervelli going 2-4 while Adam Frazier singled and walked. Lance Lynn scattered eight hits over 6 1/3 scoreless innings in the Cardinals' 4-0 shutout of the Pirates on Saturday.

The Washington Nationals have acquired relievers Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson from the Oakland Athletics for reliever Blake Treinen and prospects. After a decent season as the Athletics closer past year, Madson returned to the mound in 2017 in a setup role behind Santiago Casilla.

Washington assumes the rest of Madson's $7.5 million salary this season and his $7.5 million salary in 2018. Doolittle is under team control until 2020.

Neuse, a 22-year-old who plays shortstop and third, was a second-round draft pick in 2016 and is hitting.291 with nine homers and 51 RBIs at Class A Hagerstown in the South Atlantic League.

Saturday's malfunction has nothing to do with the rehab project, officials said. Power restored around 1 p.m. and service resumed shortly after.

Both pitchers remain under contract past this season. Luzardo, who underwent Tommy John surgery previous year, has three starts in the rookie Gulf Coast League. Drafted in the third round of the 2016 MLB Draft, Luzardo has pitched in just three games for the Rookie-ball Gulf Coast League Nationals. "Not too many parks have the crevice back there like that".
