Nationals acquire All-Star closer Kintzler from Twins

Even after acquiring Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson from the Athletics earlier this month, the Nationals remain in the hunt for bullpen help prior to Monday's non-waiver trade deadline.

The 32-year-old right-hander goes to Washington in exchange for Tyler Watson, 20, a left-handed pitcher most recently assigned to Class-A Hagerstown.

Watson was rising quickly through the ranks.

Watson is 6-4 with a 4.35 ERA in 18 games (17 starts) for Hagerstown this season and is now rated by MLB Pipeline as the No. 17 prospect in Washington's system.

The report found the UK's auto servicing and fix sector grew again in 2016, with turnover rising 2.4 per cent to £21.6 billion. Customs delays, regulatory barriers and other possible consequences of Brexit were calculated to cost an additional £49.

The Nationals hope that Kintzler can bolster their bullpen as they hope to make a deep run in the playoffs.

Among the relievers the Nationals are considering: Twins closer Brandon Kintzler, who was an All-Star this year. He already has racked up 28 saves in Minnesota.

Despite a pedestrian strikeout rate, Kintzler has been steady as the Twins' closer for the better part of two seasons, converting 45 of 52 save opportunities during that time. The only team worse is the Detroit Tigers. He is owed $1 million for the rest of the season, per The Washington Post. Kintzler, 32, has spent the last six seasons with the Twins.
