The MLB trade deadline is just a few days away, which doesn’t leave much time for competitive teams to make final acquisitions before an important last few months of regular season play.
Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer is arguably the biggest name on the open market – at least for pitchers. The 37-year-old pitcher will become a free agent after this season ends.
The Nationals are hoping to cash in before that happens. According to the latest report from MLB insider Ken Rosenthal, the team is hoping to make a deal within the next two days.
