MLB Nationals Trade Rumors: Washington Wants to Trade Papelbon and/or Storen
Earlier this month, Thomas Boswell reported that the Nationals had decided to keep Jonathan Papelbon and Drew Storen, despite what many considered to be an unrepairable situation. Bryce Harper even reached out to the man who choked him, in an effort to smooth out any lingering tension before the 2016 season. However according to Jayson Stark, not only are Papelbon and Drew still on the market, but that the Nationals might even be actively shopping them.
The is curious considering the Washington Nationals have also been linked to relievers like Darren O'Day. Their interest in other relievers tends to show that the Jonathan Papelbon and Drew Storen closer competition is in fact a problem that the Nationals would like to solve this offseason. Trading one of them, and adding someone like O'Day would certainly do so.
I’ve now heard from 3 teams in the last few days that Nationals want to deal both Papelbon & Storen, while chasing O'Day, Chapman & others— Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) November 23, 2015
