Move are still being made, people! MLB teams have until midnight to make any last-minute adjustments to their rosters.
The Los Angeles Dodgers claimed Washington Nationals right-handed reliever Ryan Madson on revocable waivers on Thursday, and now according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the two sides came to an agreement and Madson is heading to Los Angeles.
According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, the Nationals will get a prospect in return for Madson.
Madson is going to dodgers. Nats get a prospect. @Ken_Rosenthal 1st— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) August 31, 2018
Madson just came off the disabled list this week. The 38-year-old isn't having one of his best seasons, posting a 5.28 ERA over 49 appearances this year. However, he's an experienced arm with closer experience, which is exactly what the Dodgers need heading into September.
The Dodgers bullpen has been struggling, to say the least, and even though Kenley Jansen is having problems of his own, they need to do everything they can to be able to bridge the gap to him in the ninth.
If the Washington Nationals weren't waiving the white flag before, they are now after moving Daniel Murphy, Matt Adams and now Ryan Madson in a matter of days.
