WASHINGTON — The Nats are in need of sweet relief — and they’ve made moves to get it.
The Nationals on Sunday acquired right-handed pitcher Ryan Madson and left-handed pitcher Sean Doolittle in exchange for right-handed pitcher Blake Treinen, minor league LHP pitcher Jesus Luzardo and infielder Sheldon Neuse.
The moves come after Joe Ross was transferred from the 10-day to the 60-day DL to make room on the roster for the trade.
With the deadline two weeks away, the Nats still may be in the market to make more trades.
GM Mike Rizzo made the announcement.
