  • Nats with more work to do as Meetings end
    The Nationals had been one of the most active teams in baseball this offseason before the start of the Winter Meetings, and yet they leave Las Vegas with some new questions to answer. They traded away one of the stalwarts of their rotation by shipping Tanner Roark to the Reds for righty Tanner Rainey on Wednesday, and they left the door open on a reunion with Bryce Harper or a potential contract extension with Anthony Rendon.
  • Nats acquire Rainey from Reds in deal for Roark
    Even though the Nationals are searching for starting pitching depth, they still traded away one of the stalwarts of their rotation Wednesday, sending right-hander Tanner Roark to the Reds in exchange for reliever Tanner Rainey. Roark had been with the organization since 2010 and with the Nationals for six seasons, including his stellar '16 when he finished 10th in the voting for the National League Cy Young Award.

  • Athleticism, better defense key for Nats in '19
    Several times during the first two days of the Winter Meetings this week, the Nationals have stated that the proverbial door is not closed on a potential reunion with Bryce Harper.

    The Nationals' courtship of Patrick Corbin was highlighted by a dinner at Fiola Mare in Georgetown, where Corbin, his wife, Jen, and his agent, John Courtright, were hosted by Nats owner Mark Lerner and general manager Mike Rizzo. There was extra security at the restaurant because the venue was hosting another special guest that night -- Vice President Mike Pence.
  • Harper moving on, Nats' owner believes
    It appears Patrick Corbin's arrival could coincide with the end of Bryce Harper's career with the Nationals. During a radio interview with 106.7 the Fan on Friday afternoon, principal team owner Mark Lerner sounded like he had all but closed the door on the idea of a reunion with Harper.

  • Corbin deal won't impact Nats' pursuit of Harper
    The Nationals made it clear from the start of the offseason that they did not intend to wait around while Bryce Harper made his decision in free agency.
