Nationals Interested In Justin Wilson, Jerry Blevins

The Nationals are in the market for lefty relief, and they have interest in trade candidates Justin Wilson (Pirates) and Jerry Blevins (Athletics), Mark Zuckerman of NatsInsider.com reports. Earlier today, it was reported that the Pirates would listen to offers for Wilson. The Nats have also had discussions about Blevins, who posted a 3.15 ERA with 7.8 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 in 60 innings in 2013.

The Nats are also searching for bullpen lefties in free agency, where the possibilities include J.P. Howell, Boone Logan, Scott Downs and Oliver Perez. "We’re talking to free agents, and we’ve got some irons in the fire on the trade market," says GM Mike Rizzo. "It’s a position, I think, of depth this year, on the free agent market and the trade market. I think that benefits us."

Given how often Beane and Rizzo work together, I think Blevins is more likely

True, Wilson is more wishful thinking.. Plus, the A’s have a bullpen surplus.

How about Blevins for Blake Treinen, John Wooten, and Dakota Bacus 😉

I don’t really think Tyler Moore would help us.

I just don’t see how Washington would have what we need to acquire Wilson.
