Nationals didn't want to pay the price of any of their top prospect pitchers to solve their desperate closer need and accomplished that today when they landed the Pirates Mark Melancon in exchange for lefty reliever Felipe Rivero and minor league left-handed pitcher Taylor Hearn. The Nats had Davis, Miller, Chapman all ahead of Melancon on their target list but didn't like the exorbitant asking price. Melancon a 3-time all star including last 2 yrs has 1.51 ERA 0.96 whip. Cheap price to pay considering present sellers market.

He may have benefited from a wide strike zone, but be painted the corners and is going to improve to 14-3 with an ERA just over 3.00 ... and the Blue Jays, assuming they hold this 9-1 lead, will move past the Orioles into first place.
