Despite recently adding Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle to the bullpen, the Nationals are still considering trading for a closer, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. Among those being considered are Zach Britton, David Robinson, and Justin Wilson.

Heyman notes that Madson and/or Doolittle could close for the Nationals as well.

The Nationals entered Monday’s action with an aggregate 5.31 bullpen ERA, the worst mark in the majors. The club has also blown 17 saves, tied for the seventh-most in baseball.

Phillies’ Alec Bohm has MRI, sits out again with tight hamstring

NEW YORK — Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm is out of the starting lineup for the second time in three games because of left hamstring tightness.

Bohm had an MRI and the Phillies were awaiting the results. Philadelphia manager Rob Thomson said it was too soon to tell if Bohm might land on the injured list.

Bohm sat out the loss in Atlanta because of the same issue then Philadelphia was off.

Edmundo Sosa was set to start at third against the New York Mets, batting ninth.

Thomson said Bohm felt discomfort after fielding a slow roller. He played the entire game and went 0 for 3 in a 2-0 loss to the Mets.

Bohm is batting .265 with six homers and a team-high 37 RBIs this season. He has a .724 OPS.
