The Nationals bullpen continues to struggle, and with the loss of Joe Ross for the remainder of the season, the need for quality relievers has only grown. In 40 appearances, Madson posted a 2.06 ERA and 39 strikeouts, according to Baseball Reference. He offers a phenomenal 31:2 K:BB and should provide a steadying presence in high-leverage situations - perhaps with some save chances - for the Nationals moving forward. Doolittle has also been good this year as he's been striking out 13 batters per nine innings and lefties are 0-for-23 against him this season.

The Nationals' bullpen has posted a 5.34 ERA this year, which is worst in baseball, and they are just one of two bullpens in baseball with an ERA over 5.00 along with the Tigers.

Doolittle is also boasting a 0.66 WHIP this season, third-best behind any pitcher with at least 20 innings pitched, behind only Craig Kimbrel (0.51), and Kenley Jansen (0.54).

Treinen, 29, was 8-11 with a 3.39 ERA in 185 games over the past four seasons and ranks second this season in the major leagues at inducing double-play ground balls. This is huge for the Nats because if Doolittle gets injured or tired, Madson is able to step in and close. He has spent his entire six-year career with the Athletics. In Treinen, the A's are acquiring a young, controllable reliever who's oozing with talent and potential. The 22-year-old third baseman has been solid at Class A, hitting.291/.349/.469 in 321 plate appearances.

La derrota la cargó el relevo Jeff Beliveau (1-1) en trabajo de un tercio de episodio, permitiendo una carrera. Por el local, los venezolanos Miguel Cabrera de 4-1, dos impulsadas, y Víctor Martínez de 3-1.

Pointing to the Chicago Cubs and their model of developing players "organically" over the years, Beane said the A's are looking to set up a similar structure for what could ultimately pay off with a World Series title run like the Cubs put together in 2016. Neuse was the sixth-best prospect in the system and Luzardo 10th at the time of the trade, per Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports. Some believe that the Nats' window to win is closing, so Doolittle and Madson will benefit the Nats more than Luzardo. Join the District on Deck team!

It's called News Feed, and for the past five years, it has been the company's core money maker and source of revenue growth. In the list that appears, you should see an entry labelled Explorer Feed -this is what you're looking for, so give it a tap.

With players like Sonny Gray and Yonder Alonso reportedly hot among contending teams as the trade deadline nears, Beane will most likely be busy making additional moves. It appears the days of watching a terrible Nats bullpen could finally be behind us.
