That is what the team said. But in the last 24 hours both Dee Gordon and Howie Kendrick have been traded, and NOT to the Nationals! Both are second baseman who could certainly help the Nats. Kendrick is going to the Dodgers (to replace Gordon) and Gordon is going to the Marlins.
I do know Mike Rizzo had been talking to the Angels about Kendrick. I’m discouraged that the two teams could not put a deal together. However Asdrubal Cabrera is still out there!
