    The Washington Nationals acquired shortstop Yunel Escobar from the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday in exchange for reliever Tyler Clippard, according to reports.

    Escobar, traded to Oakland by the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday, could become Washington's everyday second baseman, allowing Ian Desmond to play shortstop. 

    Clippard spent seven years with the Nationals, functioning as a setup man and closer.
