The Washington Nationals have acquired left-handed pitcher Marc Rzepczynski and cash considerations in a trade with the Oakland Athletics in exchange for minor league infielder Max Schrock, per Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post.

Rzepczynski has appeared in 56 games out of the bullpen this season, pitching to the tune of a 3.00 ERA. In 36 innings of work, the 30-year-old has allowed 38 hits and has walked 24 batters, resulting in a rather unsightly 1.722 WHIP.

However, Rzepczynski has been able to mitigate the damage by striking out 37 hitters and inducing ground balls at a rate of 69.5 percent. Due to his ability to keep the ball on the ground, Rzepczynski has surrendered only one home run. He also owns a decent 3.62 FIP.

As for Schrock, the 21-year-old has been putting up solid minor league numbers since being selected by the Nationals in the 2015 June Amateur Draft.

Thus far in 2016, Schrock, who has primarily played second base, owns a slash line of .333/.378/.456 in 502 at bats. He has tallied nine home runs and 68 RBI and on top of that, he has added 22 stolen bases.
