Getting off to a fast start in terms of roster building this winter, (with the additions of Kyle Barraclough and Trevor Rosenthal to the bullpen, Kurt Suzuki and Yan Gomes behind the plate, and Patrick Corbin to the starting rotation), allowed the Washington Nationals to see what the Winter Meetings had to offer without the urgency which sometimes accompanies the yearly gathering. “Mike [Rizzo] and the staff and the...

The Nationals’ bullpen needs another left-hander

The Nationals’ bullpen needs another left-hander

Following the additions of Kyle Barraclough and Trevor Rosenthal, the Washington Nationals’ bullpen is a deeper unit but lacks enough southpaws to round out the relief corps. The 2018-19 offseason is an important one for the Washington Nationals, and they’ve wasted no time making moves to fortify one of their most important areas: the bullpen. By acquiring former Miami Marlins closer Kyle Barraclough just 10 days after the regular-season finale and signing ex-St. Louis Cardinals ninth-inning man Trevor Rosenthal to an incentive-laden deal, Washington solidified a portion of a key part...
