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.
